Synopsis

The second edition of this book on lipids, lipoprotein and
membrane biochemistry has two major objectives - to provide an

advanced textbook for students in these areas of biochemistry,

and to summarise the field for scientists pursuing research in

these and related fields.



Since the first edition of this book was published in 1985 the

emphasis on research in the area of lipid and membrane
biochemistry has evolved in new directions. Consequently, the

second edition has been modified to include four chapters on
lipoproteins. Moreover, the other chapters have been extensively

updated and revised so that additional material covering the
areas of cell signalling by lipids, the assembly of lipids and

proteins into membranes, and the increasing use of molecular
biological techniques for research in the areas of lipid,
lipoprotein and membrane biochemistry have been included.

Each chapter of the textbook is written by an expert in the
field, but the chapters are not simply reviews of current
literature. Rather, they are written as current, readable
summaries of these areas of research which should be readily
understandable to students and researchers who have a basic
knowledge of general biochemistry. The authors were selected for

their abilities both as researchers and as communicators. In
addition, the editors have carefully coordinated the chapters so

that there is little overlap, yet extensive cross-referencing
among chapters.
