This detailed book provides a state-of-the-art compilation of protocols relevant for the experimental study of cholestasis, each written by internationally recognized research teams that have built up long-standing expertise regarding one or more aspects of experimental cholestasis research. The first half of the collection examines methods targeted towards studying established and new mechanisms of cholestasis, while the second half explores experimental models and tools to investigate mechanisms of cholestasis and/or to predict cholestatic properties of drugs. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, 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, Experimental Cholestasis Research serves as an ideal guide for basic and applied researchers pursuing this vital area of research in pharmacology and toxicology.
