Lipid Metabolism is the study of catabolism and anabolism of Lipids, which is occur in living organisms. This category include the metabolism of Fatty acids, cholesterol and some other molecules. We are updating more in coming days.
In biochemistry, eicosanoids (preferred IUPAC name icosanoids) are signaling molecules made by oxidation of 20-carbon fatty acids. They exert complex control over many bodily systems such as In growth during and after... Read more »
Fatty acid synthesis occurs similarly to Beta-oxidation – acetyl groups are added to a growing chain, but the mechanism of the pathway is distinctly different from being simply the reverse of Beta-oxidation.... Read more »
Glucose entering the TCA cycle is used for the biosynthesis of saturated fatty acids by converting TCA Cycle citrate to acetyl coenzyme~A (acetyl~CoA), and then malonyl~CoA, which is used to produce palmitate.... Read more »
The most abundant phospholipids are made from glycerol. Phospholipids are important components of membranes, and help transport triacylglycerols and cholesterol in the body. Typically, they have saturated fatty acids at carbon #1... Read more »
The major aspects of lipid metabolism are involved with Fatty Acid Oxidation to produce energy or the synthesis of lipids which is called Lipogenesis. Lipid metabolism is closely connected to the metabolism... Read more »
