Researchers have shown that inhibiting Treg activation in tumours can provide effective immune responses without autoimmune toxicity.
Researchers have found that the PI3K signalling pathway could be targeted to prevent liptoxicity and combat obesity.
Inhaled general anaesthetics have been used for over 100 years and continue to be used daily for surgeries around the world. But how do they induce changes to consciousness? This article explores the research that suggests the anaesthetics chloroform and isoflurane disrupt the organisation of lipid rafts within cellular membranes…
A new article has outlined the body's inflammatory response to COVID-19 infection, saying that lipid mediators derived from omega-3 fatty acids could prevent life-threatening inflammation.
A novel software made by scientists can be used for the analysis of specific lipid groups and lipid signal molecules which can enable their characterisation with mass spectrometry.
A new method has been developed by researchers using chemical tools activated by light to influence lipid concentration in living cells.
Researchers have obtained the crystal structure of the lipin enzyme, the regulator of triglyceride production, which they say could inform research into heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
Today we are beginning to realise that lipids have been inadequately represented in biological and medical research. For decades, studies in the fields of DNA and proteins have been pushed but despite these adverse conditions, lipid research has made pioneering discoveries over the course of the last seven years. These…
Euro Metabolomics 2018 will be a platform to investigate on recent research and advancements that can be useful to the researchers.
There are no short-cuts in the complex field of lipidomics, explains Cristina Legido-Quigley, a Principal Investigator in Systems Medicine at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen in Denmark and at King’s College London.
Research at MedUni Vienna’s Centre for Brain Research has investigated changes in certain lipids (choline phospholipids) in the plasma of elderly people who were healthy and those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
