The Journal of Lipid Research (JLR) focuses on the science of lipids in health and disease. The Journal emphasizes lipid function and the biochemical and genetic regulation of lipid metabolism. In addition, JLR publishes manuscripts on patient-oriented and epidemiological research relating to altered lipid metabolism, including modification of dietary lipids. The JLR aims to be on the forefront of the emerging areas of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics as they relate to lipid metabolism and function. The JLR covers biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, structural biology, genetics, genomics, immunology, metabolism, nutrition and clinical science as they relate to lipids. The following are representative areas covered in the Journal:
Simulation predicts epidermal responses to compounds
Skin is the body's largest organ. It is a protective barrier, keeping microbes out and moisture in. It also regulates temperature, enables sensation, and makes vitamin D. But researchers don't fully understand ...
Study finds specialized bacterial cells found in the gut produce steroid hormones
The human gut is home to trillions of bacteria, many of which play an important role in helping the body strike a healthy balance. In the gut, bacteria are involved in the synthesis of vitamins, as well as ...
Researchers create tomatoes that mimic actions of good cholesterol
UCLA researchers have genetically engineered tomatoes to produce a peptide that mimics the actions of good cholesterol when consumed.
