Advances in Lipid Research, Volume 4 provides information pertinent to the actions of catecholamines to lipid metabolism. This book discusses lipid metabolism in microorganisms wherein one relates specifically to the fatty acids of microorganisms and the other to general aspects of lipid metabolism in microorganisms. Organized into seven chapters, this volume begins with an overview of some of the contributions of lipid research to the understanding of the clotting mechanism. This text then examines the extent to which dietary carbohydrate interferes in lipid metabolism. Other chapters consider the lipid-mobilizing effects of adrenomimetic agents, which are highly specific for the depot type of adipose tissue. This book discusses as well a number of areas of bacterial lipid biochemistry that are under investigation. The final chapter deals with the procedures for assessing the purity of labeled lipids by organic synthesis, biosynthesis, and isotope exchange techniques. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, scientists, and research workers.
