At the meeting of the American Society of Biological Chemists in December, 1919, the matter of a classification of the fats and related substances was brought before the members for discussion. It was decided that the available knowledge on the subject was insufficient to justify a classification at that time. While admitting the truth of the conclusion it has seemed to me since, that something might be gained by an attempt at classification,—in clarifying our ideas and in bringing the newer… Expand

Chapter 21 – Fats
In this chapter fats are described as a class of lipids. Lipids, in general, are classified based on Bloor’s taxonomy, with different levels of details given to the description of fatty acids,Expand
Separation of Lipids
Abstract Lipids are biomolecules with an enormous structural diversity. The most important are fatty acids, glycolipids, phospholipids, sphingolipids and sterols. They are usually isolated byExpand
Chapter 8 – Lipidomics
Profiling of the individual lipids in biological fluids is of great concern with respect to human health and disease; as a consequence, the task of lipid analysis and profiling has become everExpand
Lipid-Based Polymer Building Blocks and Polymers
Lipids are key components of biosystems. Their use is also widespread in industry, consumer products, personal care, and in the food and pharmaceutical industries. We find natural waxes such asExpand
Polyunsaturated ω-3 fatty acids inhibit ACE2-controlled SARS-CoV-2 binding and cellular entry
This study provides a new insight into the role of lipids as antiviral compounds against the SARS-CoV-2 strain by screening polyunsaturated fatty acids and eicosapentaenoic acid as lipid-soluble vitamins. Expand
Impact of Lipid Nutrition on Neural Stem/Progenitor Cells
It is shown that lipid signals including fat, fatty acids, their metabolites and intracellular carriers, cholesterol, and vitamins affect proliferation and differentiation of embryonic and adult NSPCs. Expand
Chapter 8 – Separation of lipids
This chapter illustrates different instrumental approaches using liquid chromatography for lipid analysis. A critical overview is given, of the capabilities of single and hyphenated techniquesExpand
