Life - As a Matter of Fat: The Emerging Science of Lipidomics

Ole Mouritsen, "Life - As a Matter of Fat: The Emerging Science of Lipidomics"
English | 2005 | ISBN: 3540232486 | 273 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Presents a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and the particular role played by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes.

Emphasizes the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces.

By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recent studies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is and how it can be quantitatively described.

Shows how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure and organization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells.

Applications of lipids in nano-technology and biomedicine are also described.
