    Abstract: This book details multiple ways that soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptors( SNAREs) and their function are examined in the laboratory. The methods described in each chapter are described in detail so that novice as well as experienced researchers can explore the mechanisms of SNARE-mediated membrane fusion. Chapters guide readers through an overview of the basic properties of SNAREs, distribution and interaction with regulators of membrane fusion, activation of SNAREs in the priming stage by NSF/Sec18 and a-SNAP/Sec17, examining the structures and interactions of SNAREs, measuring the interactions of SNAREs, interactions of SNAREs, and post-translational modifications of SNAREs and how they affect function.Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, SNAREs: Methods and Protocols aims to be a valuable tool for all investigators interested in the field

    Notes: One of the most prominent features of pathogenic mycobacteria, which include the potent human pathogens Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium leprae and their opportunistic relatives Mycobacterium avium and Mycobacterium marinum, is their ability to survive and multiply in phagosomes of mononuclear phagocytic cells. The phagocytosed mycobacteria reside in a vacuolar compartment which is exempted from maturation into the phagolysosome. Recently, the arrest of the maturation of phagosomes containing M. tuberculosis complex organisms (Mycobacterium bovis BCG) has been linked to the accumulation on the phagosomal membrane of the small GTP binding protein rab5, specific for the control of fusion within the early endosomal compartment. Furthermore, M. bovis BCG phagosome is devoid of rab7, a rab protein associated with the late endosome. The selective accumulation of rab5 and exclusion of rab7 defines the check point that has been compromised in mycobacterial phagosome maturation. Here we summarize these observations and relates them to other phenomena in the area of membrane and protein trafficking with the emphasis on phagosomes containing intracellular pathogens.
