Diabetes is now reaching epidemic proportions, and the associated complications of this disease can be disabling and even life-threatening. In Type 2 Diabetes: Methods and Protocols, leading investigators provide up-to-date explanations of commonly used laboratory protocols used in diabetes research. Covering the commonly described in vivo and in vitro model systems, the volume ultimately leads to an overall view of how cellular dysfunction and degeneration leads to susceptibility and diabetes disease progression. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, chapters include brief introductions to their respective subjects, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and expert notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Type 2 Diabetes: Methods and Protocols offers succinct, proven techniques to aid research scientists and clinicians in continuing the study of this debilitating disease.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews: "This book provides in 17 chapters laboratory protocols used in diabetes research. It describes methods using new technologies in studying pancreatic beta cells. For research diabetologists." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 7 (4), June, 2010)"Written for those engaged in basic science research who have an interest in expanding their repertoire of techniques for the study of diabetes. . a credible source of information for those seeking experimental advice. . an excellent compilation of techniques for the laboratory study of diabetes, particularly those who are interested in studying pancreatic beta cells. Many techniques are covered, with up-to-date and relevant references as well as step-by-step instructions for performing them. The book is a useful addition to any diabetes researcher's bookshelf." (Robert Michael Sargis, Doody's Review Service, July, 2010)
