Advances in Lipid Research, Volume 3 presents the analysis of human serum lipoproteins and emphasizes the possibilities inherent in the application of computer methods to such analyses. This book discusses the effects of various drugs on the other important component of the serum lipids, the phospholipids.

Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the possibility of a dehydrogenation toward the methyl group. This text then presents a detailed discussion of lipoprotein structure, metabolism, and catabolism. Other chapters consider some potentially significant revisions in lipoprotein procedure, including additions to the technology of lipoprotein analysis. This book discusses as well the chemistry and metabolism of plasma lipoprotein as related to physiological and disease states. The final chapter deals with the advances in methods of purification and studies of the properties and mode of action of lipases.

This book is a valuable resource for organic chemists, neurochemists, and biochemists.
