Lipids: Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Health Paperback – 26 Aug The book. This is a paperback book on Lipids 24cm by 19 cm. It is well illustrated with chemical diagrams and reaction pathway diagrams. There are also a few EM pictures. Target audience/5(4). Our picture of the structure of the fatty acid synthetase has changed dramatically, bringing a new concept in enzymology - the multicatalytic polypeptide chain. This new knowledge owes much to the exploitation of genetic mutants, the use of which is undoubtedly going to extend into many other areas of lipid : Springer Netherlands.   The book provides a most comprehensive treatment of the subject, making it essential reading for all those working with or studying lipids. Upper level students of biochemistry, biology, clinical subjects, nutrition and food science will find the contents of this book invaluable as a study aid, as will postgraduates specializing in the topics. Since the publication of the first edition of this successful and popular book in , the subject of lipid biochemistry has evolved greatly and this fifth up-to-date and comprehensive edition includes much new and exciting information. Lipid Biochemistry, fifth edition has been largely re-written in a user-friendly way, with chapters containing special interest topic boxes, summary points.

Serves as a general reference book for scientists studying lipids, lipoproteins and membranes and as an advanced and up-to-date textbook for teachers and students who are familiar with the basic concepts of lipid biochemistry. HDL particles are cholesterol and phospholipid-rich, and aid in reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral tissues to the liver, where it is removed. Therefore, HDL cholesterol is considered “good cholesterol”. Going into further detail, the transport of plasma lipids involves 2 routes. Biochemistry of Lipids: Lipoproteins and Membranes, Volume Six, contains concise chapters that cover a wide spectrum of topics in the field of lipid biochemistry and cell biology. It provides an important bridge between broad-based biochemistry textbooks and more technical research publications, offering cohesive, foundational information. (cholesterol or bile acid)? Before analyzing the effects of drugs on lipids, one must understand lipid biochemistry and nomenclature. Lipids are organic molecules used for energy and structural physiologic functions and broadly defined are simply molecules that are not or partially soluble in water.

Lipid Books Recommended by Thomas Dayspring MD, FACP I have often been asked by many what are the basic reference books one should have on the shelf if lipidology is you passion. By far the best way to understand lipids and their treatment is to Lipid Biochemistry: An Introduction Gurr, Harwood and Frayn Blackwell Science A readable yet. Lipids can usually be extracted easily from tissues by making use of their hydrophobic characteristics. However, such extractions yield a complex mixture of different lipid classes which have to be purified further for quantitative analysis. Moreover, the crude lipid extract will be contami­ nated. lism, Lipid metabolism, Nucleic acids, Enzymes, Vitamins and Mineral metabolism. The objective questions are prepared based on the background taken from previous question papers of Profes-sional medical and Paramedical competitive entrance examinations. The book serves as a ready reckoner for Biochemistry as far as objective pattern is concerned. Cholesterol and triglycerides are insoluble in water and therefore these lipids must be transported in association with proteins. Lipoproteins are complex particles with a central core containing cholesterol esters and triglycerides surrounded by free cholesterol, phospholipids, and apolipoproteins, which facilitate lipoprotein formation and function. Plasma lipoproteins can be divided into Cited by:
