Description

Advances in Lipid Research, Volume 6 provides information pertinent to brain cholesterol and myelin lipids. This book reviews the various aspects of the physiology, chemistry, and biochemistry of lipids.

Organized into seven chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the separation of lipoproteins and discusses lipid metabolism in microorganisms. This text then provides a discussion of lipid metabolism in mycoplasmas. Other chapters consider the various aspects of metabolism of the lipid quinones and explore the relationship between lipids and atherosclerosis as a continuing source of biochemical, medical, and nutritional interest. This book discusses as well a comparative aspect of the development of atherosclerosis and explains the chemistry of bile acids. The final chapter deals with the aspects of steroid separations as well as with regard to separation of other metabolites that may influence lipid metabolism.

This book is a valuable resource for biologists, biochemists, scientists, and research workers.
