Leading researchers and clinical investigators describe their best cutting-edge techniques for studying, at both the molecular and biochemical levels, the defects in insulin production and action associated with diabetes. Written in step-by-step detail to ensure ready reproducibility and robust results, these techniques allow investigators, both novices and those already active in the field, to study every major facet of insulin production and action. Each protocol includes an introduction to the technique, an explanation of its application, and a list of materials. Practical notes discuss how to avoid pitfalls, as well as how to adapt the methods to your own research.

Editorial Reviews

"This book provides all the critical tools needed for the productive study of diabetes mellitus today." - Clinical Laboratory International"Each chapter/protocol is well referenced and the book is indexed. Because Diabetes Mellitus: Methods and Protocols provides all the critical tools needed for the productive study of diabetes mellitus, it is a necessary purchase for libraries supporting basic research programs that study the molecular and biochemical bases of diabetes mellitus." -E-STREAMS
