About this book

This volume provides state-of-the-art techniques for studying various aspects of cholesterol homeostasis, including its uptake, synthesis and efflux from the cell, as well as its trafficking within the cell.  Chapters also cover techniques for studying the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis at both the transcriptional and post-translational levels, as well as studying the membrane topology and structure of cholesterol-related proteins. 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.

Authoritative and practical, Cholesterol Homeostasis: Methods and Protocols aims to provide key techniques in tackling the investigation of cholesterol homeostasis.

Reviews

“The multicountry authors of this volume review present knowledge on the multiple basic roles of cholesterol in the living body. Each chapter details the methods of studies performed, backed by many references. For biologists, physiologists, biochemists.” (Zvi Laron, Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 15 (1), September, 2017)
