About this book

As the major structural component of cell membranes, lipids not only serve as barriers but also play active roles in cellular function. In this volume, contributors explore the synthesis, metabolism, and distribution of lipid species in the cell; the composition of lipid rafts and their roles in protein trafficking and signaling; and the biophysical behavior of lipids and membranes.
