Offering material on the contributions of membrane lipids to cellular/organism function, this book begins with simple cells and ends with a most complex organism: humans. Omega-3 fatty acids serve both as a focus and as a tool for investigating the membrane. Specific topics include co-evolution of lipids and membrane-associated proteins, convergent evolution of biosynthetic pathways to produce omega-3's, and evolution of an omega-3 rich marine bacterium, and the impact of omega-3's on membrane properties. The book addresses key biological issues including bioremediation, winemaking, genetic…mehr

Offering material on the contributions of membrane lipids to cellular/organism function, this book begins with simple cells and ends with a most complex organism: humans. Omega-3 fatty acids serve both as a focus and as a tool for investigating the membrane. Specific topics include co-evolution of lipids and membrane-associated proteins, convergent evolution of biosynthetic pathways to produce omega-3's, and evolution of an omega-3 rich marine bacterium, and the impact of omega-3's on membrane properties. The book addresses key biological issues including bioremediation, winemaking, genetic engineering of oil crops, impacts of global warming, fertility, and neurodegenerative disease and cancer research.
