Welcome - Biochemistry of Lipids BIOC 4302   Biochemistry of Lipids
CREDIT HOURS: 3
The biochemistry and metabolism of a variety of lipids is studied, especially of those, such as fatty acids, glycolipids, eicosanoids, steroids and phospholipids, with specialized physiological or lipid-second messenger functions. Intracellular and inter-tissue transport and regulatory processes are emphasized. The chemistry and physics of insoluble lipids in an aqueous environment are explored and problems in the interaction of lipids with soluble and insoluble enzymes are considered.
