About this book

Essential in biological functions like cell signaling and, when disturbed, a likely cause of disease, lipids have proven to be a vital force in cell biology. In Lipidomics: Methods and Protocols, an international panel of experts present a wide variety of reviewed as well as unpublished data on isolation techniques, structural analysis, lipid rafts, lipid trafficking and profiling, biomarkers, lipid peroxidation, biostatistics applied to lipids, software tools, and bioinformatics. These studies range from simple systems, such as in yeast, to complex biological models. Samples used in these studies include: mitochondria, microsomes, endosomal membranes, RBS and plasma membranes, vesicles, caveolae, liposomes, macrophages, meibum, brain, microglia, retina, adipose tissue, keratinocytes, pulmonary surfactant, and hepatic cultures.  Volume 1 focuses on shotgun and global lipidomics, analytical approaches, and lipid maps. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters include useful introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary equipment and materials, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and authoritative notes on troubleshooting and avoiding common pitfalls.

Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Lipidomics: Methods and Protocols will support researchers who wish to increase their utilization of lipidomics, which will certainly lead to more powerful technology, improved diagnostic-prognostic capabilities, and the identification of new valuable products.
