About this book
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 sucessful Methods in Molecular Biology™ 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, which provides invaluable tips and tricks to safeguard against potential mishaps and pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Adipose Tissue Protocols: Second Edition 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.
