About this book

This state-of-the-art reference addresses lysophospholipids, a special kind of fat that has been found to have a growing number of receptors within the cell and has important, natural roles in the body including normal reproduction, development, maturation, and life. Lysophospholipid Receptors: Signaling and Biochemistry covers the biochemistry, interactions, and signaling of lysophospholipids as well as its potential for producing new therapies for a range of medically important human diseases. Bringing together current knowledge in lysophospholipid signaling, Lysophospholipid Receptors: Signaling and Biochemistry is a must-have for all academic, industrial, and medical school and hospital libraries.
