About this book


This volume discusses a variety of animal models of diabetes, as well as describes techniques used to study end-points when using these models. The chapters in this book cover topics such as important considerations when working with mouse models of diabetes, highlighting factors that new investigators may not be aware of and some potential pitfalls in experimental outcomes; main characteristics of some commonly used animal models of diabetes research, ranging from mice to primates; animal models used to study specific aspects of beta-cell biology; and a focus on techniques used to assess blood glucose homeostasis, insulin action, and islet function in vivo and ex vivo. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Animal Models of Diabetes: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource that will help diabetes researchers design and carry out in vivo studies that will best suit their experimental questions and needs.
