This book examines the pleiotropic effects of ethanol in animal and cell culture models through a collection of detailed procedures written by experts in the field. Sections present clearly defined models of ethanol exposure, recent advances in the development of specific methodologies to mimic the impact of ethanol metabolism in cultured cells, and methodologies to investigate a variety of cells and tissues that are known to be disrupted by ethanol, amongst other topics.
