Lipid biochemistry can seem overwhelming, which is why it needs to be explained in a simple and straightforward manner.

Ashour Saleh Eljamil, a renowned professor of biochemistry, has written this textbook for undergraduate students in the medical sciences, but it's a resource that anyone can use to bolster their knowledge about this important subject.

To fully understand biochemistry, you need to know how biomolecules are structured, which is why the first chapter emphasizes the individual chemical structure of various lipid classes. You'll also learn how dietary lipids are digested and absorbed as well as how their metabolism works in separate chapters focusing on fatty acids synthesis, fatty acid oxidation, acylglycerols and sphingolipids, glycolipids, cholesterol, plasma lipoproteins, steroid hormones, and fat-soluble vitamins.

While scientists have studied lipid biochemistry for three centuries, it's only in the past few decades that we've begun to understand why it's so important. Gain a clearer understanding of the world with insights about bile acids, sterols, carotenoids, sex hormones, vitamin K and much, much more when you dive into the world of Lipid Biochemistry.
