Description

Lipids in Plants and Algae: From Fundamental Science to Industrial Applications, Volume 101 provides in-depth reviews on the most important aspects of the field. Topics in this volume encompass the most recent data about the physical properties of membrane lipids, lipid biosynthesis and metabolism (including glycerolipids, fatty acids, sterols, N-acylethanolamines, prostaglandins, phytoprostane), lipid storage, acyl flux, the dynamic and transport of glycerolipids, and the conversion of fatty acids into hydrocarbons. Lipid metabolism and lipidomics in plants and algae are one of the most challenging areas in biology, not only for fundamental research but also for the sustainable production of valuable molecules for green chemistry, including biofuel and health.

Key Features

  • Includes sections on fatty acid synthesis, lipid storage and hydrocarbon production
  • Covers biophysics, biochemistry, metabolism and the bioengineering of plant and algae lipids
  • Provides readers with a comprehensive resource on lipid dynamics and fluxes in plants and algae

Readership

Graduate and undergraduate students and researchers wishing to initiate or pursue special studies in the field
