Experimental Pharmacology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Transgenic Models
in Pharmacology

edited by Stefan Offermanns
and Lutz Hein

Up-to-date information on animal models generated by transgenic or gene targeting techniques. Naturally, the focus is on the mouse system. Each chapter has been written by leading experts in the field and gives an overview on existing animal models. This is facilitated by tables, which list the most important genetically engineered animal models and their phenotypes.

This book aims at illustrating the impact of transgenic animal models in the field of Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology, which includes their role in the understanding of basic cellular mechanisms, the evaluation of potential drug targets or the testing for drug effects.

Transgenic Models in Pharmacology is an outstanding resource for scientists and researchers in the fields of biomedicine, pharmacology and genetics.
