`The book is a must for all scientists in plant lipid research and a valuable source of information for plant physiologists, biochemists and plant molecular biologists.' Journal of Plant Physiology, `The volume is addressed to scientists and PhDstudents, actively involved Plant lipid biochemistry book a lipid research.

Also, it may be recommended to those academic teachers who are looking for a critical review of what is going in certain lipid research Author: John Peter Williams. Plant lipid biochemistry book manuscript then examines the biosynthesis of saturated fatty acids, biochemistry of plant acyl carrier proteins, and biosynthesis of monoenoic and polyenoic fatty acids.

Discussions focus on polyunsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis and regulation, molecular Plant lipid biochemistry book, and immunological characterization of acyl carrier : $ The different topics covered show that modern tools of plant cellular and molecular biology, as well as molecular genetics, have been recently used to characterize several key enzymes of plant lipid metabolism (in particular, desaturases, thioesterases, fatty acid synthetase) and to isolate corresponding cDNAs and genomic clones, allowing the use of genetic engineering methods to modify the Author: J.C.

Kader. Publisher Summary. Plant lipid biochemistry book Plants produce the majority of the world's lipids, and most animals, including humans, depend on these lipids as a major source of calories and essential fatty acids.

Like other eukaryotes, plants require lipids for membrane biogenesis, as signal molecules, and as a form of stored carbon and energy. The Biochemistry of Plants: A Comprehensive Treatise, Volume 4: Lipids: Structure and Function provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of plant lipid biochemistry.

This book covers a variety of topics, including oxidative enzymes, glyoxylate cycle, lipoxygenases, ethylene biosynthesis, phospholipids, and Edition: 1. The fully revised and expanded fourth edition of Plant Biochemistry presents the latest science on the molecular mechanisms of plant life.

The book not only covers the basic principles of plant biology, such as photosynthesis, primary and secondary metabolism, the function of phytohormones, plant genetics, and plant biotechnology, but it also addresses the various commercial applications of plant biochemistry.

“After five editions, Lipid Biochemistry still plays a somewhat pioneering role and a new, up-to-date edition is a timely addition.” Cell Biochemistry & Function, Nov " provides a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the subject this is a helpful addition to all studying or researching in the area of lipids and lipid metabolism."Cited by:   Plant Lipid Biochemistry of Fatty Acids and Acyl Lipids with Particular Reference to Higher Plants and Algae.

[C Hitchcock; B W Nichols]. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, 2nd Edition has been hailed as a major contribution to the plant sciences literature and critical acclaim has been matched by global sales success. Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second will provide a major update, include much new material and reorganise some chapters to further improve the presentation.

This book is. New research tools have revealed many surprising aspects of the dynamic nature of lipids and their participation in processes such as recognition, intra- and inter-cellular signalling, deterrence and defence against pathogens, membrane trafficking and protein function.

This is in addition to new information on the more established roles of plant lipids as structural components of membranes and Author: Denis J. Murphy. This short text is designed to provide basic information about plant and microbial lipids not only for scientists working in the microbiological and plant fields, but for anyone wanting a concise introduction to this aspect of lipid biochemistry.

We have long been aware that standard biochemistry. Lipids can usually be extracted easily from tissues by making use of their hydrophobic characteristics. However, such extractions yield a complex mixture of different lipid classes which have to be purified further for quantitative analysis.

Moreover, the crude lipid extract will be contami­ nated. Abstract. The composition of lipid classes and the patterns of constituent fatty acids of lipids from hetero-trophic, photomixotrophic and photoautotrophic cultures are described and compared. the role of cultural conditions in stimulating the production of certain lipid classes and fatty acids is discussed.
