The radical expansion and revision of techniques and experimental approaches employed in the study of adipose tissue are reflected in this revised book. Several updated chapters are combined with many new contributions from internationally recognized experts. Conventional and state-of-the-art methodologies are covered, as well as whole animal, cellular and molecular approaches which have emerged in or been extended to adipose tissue research over the past few years. This revised all-in-one manual is essential reading for newcomers to this burgeoning area as well as a valuable volume for more experienced researchers.
Since the publication of the first edition, the techniques and experimental approaches employed in the study of adipose tissue have undergone radical expansion and revision. In Adipose Tissue Protocols: Second Edition, several updated chapters are combined with many new contributions from internationally recognized experts covering both conventional and state-of-the-art methodologies as well as whole animal, cellular and molecular approaches which have emerged in or been extended to adipose tissue research over the past few years. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology(TM) series, each chapter includes an introduction to its subject matter, a list of necessary materials, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and a Notes section. Cutting-edge and comprehensive, this revised book is an essential manual for newcomers to this burgeoning area as well as a valuable addition to the laboratories and offices of more experienced researchers.
