Phospholipids are the major component of cell membranes. This feed focuses on the role of gut microorganisms in phospholipid metabolism.
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) is a protein involved in fat metabolism and associated with the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and cardiovascular disease. Here is the latest research on APOE phenotypes.
Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
Baterial metabolism is how bacteria obtain the energy and nutrients they need to live and reproduce.The study of bacterial metabolism focuses on the chemical diversity of substrate oxidations and dissimilation reactions (reactions by which substrate molecules are broken down), which normally function in bacteria to generate energy. Also within the scope of bacterial metabolism is the study of the uptake and utilization of the inorganic or organic compounds required for growth and maintenance of a cellular steady state (assimilation reactions). Discover the latest research on bacterial metabolism here.
Lipids are essential in many biological functions, including membrane structure, energy storage, and cell signaling. Find the latest research on the cell biology of lipids here.
Clinical lipidology focuses on diagnosis, pathophysiology, and clinical management of lipid and lipoprotein disorders. Here is the latest research.
Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) is a glycolipid anchor for several cell-surface proteins that play a role in various biological processes, including signal transduction, prion disease pathogenesis, and immune response. Here is the latest research.
Glycosylation disorders are typically associated with disruptions of early steps in glycan biosynthesis pathways. This feed focuses on the latest research on mechanisms and pathways underlying glycosylation disorders.
This feed focuses on small molecules produced by the human microbiota. Several small molecules representing each of the major metabolic classes have been identified and implicated in several biological processes including modulation of the immune system and antibiosis. Here is the latest research.
Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.
Lipid droplets are cellular organelles that store neutral lipids enclosed in a phospholipid monolayer. They are at the centre of lipid and energy homeostasis, and several metabolic diseases including obesity and diabetes. Here is the latest research on lipid droplet biology.
