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.
AFM in situ DNA describes in situ analysis (or study) of DNA using atomic force microscopy. Discover the latest research on AFM in situ DNA here.
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.
Bacterial protein structures can expedite the development of novel antibiotics. Here is the latest research on bacterial proteins and the resolution of their structures.
Bioenergetic processes, including cellular respiration and photosynthesis, concern the transformation of energy by cells. Here is the latest research on the role of calcium in bioenergetics.
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.
Cholesterol is essential for a variety of cellular processes, including cell growth and division, and it plays an important role in various signaling pathways. Here is the latest research on cholesterol synthesis and the role of cholesterol in cell signaling.
Clinical lipidology focuses on diagnosis, pathophysiology, and clinical management of lipid and lipoprotein disorders. Here is the latest research.
This feed focuses on cytochromes, including cytochrome C and the cytochromes P450 (CYP) enzyme system, and their involvement in the activation and inactivation of drugs.
