Note Editore

Biochemistry of Lipids, Lipoproteins and Membranes, Seventh Edition serves as a comprehensive, general reference book for scientists and students studying lipids, lipoproteins and membranes. Here, across 19 chapters, leaders in the field summarize fundamental concepts, recent research developments, data analysis, and implications for human disease and intervention. Topics discussed include lipid biology in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, fatty acid synthesis, desaturation and elongation, and pathways leading to synthesis of complex phospholipids, sphingolipids and their structural variants. Chapters also examine how bioactive lipids are involved in cell signaling, with an emphasis on disease implications and pathological consequences.

As the field advances, each chapter in this new edition has been fully revised to address emerging topics, with all-new coverage of lipid droplets and their role as regulatory organelles for energy homeostasis, as well as their relationship to obesity, liver disease and diabetes. Evolving research in fatty acid handling and storage in eukaryotes is also discussed in-depth, with new sections addressing fatty acid uptake, activation and lipolysis.

  • Fully revised to cover new and emerging topics
  • Provides an important bridge between broad-based biochemistry research and application
  • Presents key concepts that are supported by figures and models to improve understanding
  • Includes references from current literature in each chapter to facilitate in-depth study

Dr. Neale Ridgway has made his scientific mark nationally and internationally and is a noted world expert in the synthesis, transport and regulation of two of the most abundant and important lipids in the human body - cholesterol and phosphatidylcholine His revelations about the signals and pathways that control these lipids are having a profound impact on our understanding of the origins and progression of such diseases as Alzheimer's, atherosclerosis, cancer and lipid storage disorders. His groundbreaking work is frequently cited by other scientists in the literature, a key indicator of his influence and achievements.
Dr. McLeod is a lipid researcher and studies how dietary fats are transported, broken down, stored and used in the body - and how different fats can either lead to, or prevent, chronic disease. He's particularly interested in obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, related diseases that are skyrocketing, in spite of widespread attempts to counter the deadly trends.
