About this book

Many unexplored complex cellular and organismal adaptations occur in response to the stress of alcohol exposure, and its contribution to the development of chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes, is particularly relevant today, given the increased incidence of these diseases in our aging population. In Alcohol: Methods and Protocols, the pleiotropic effects of ethanol in animal and cell culture models are rigorously examined 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. As part of the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, each chapter provides step-by-step laboratory protocols, lists of the necessary materials, and a Notes section with tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and highly specific, Alcohol: Methods and Protocols strives to further spur investigators to delve into the complex and fascinating processes of the adaptive and maladaptive responses humans have developed to the consumption of alcohol.
