Editorial Reviews

Contains papers from the May 1996 symposium, in sections on fatty acids and esters, lipid-binding proteins, eicosanoid biosynthetic enzymes, eicosanoids and receptors, sphingolipids, phospholipids, and phospholipases/kinases. Highlights areas including the roles of fatty acids and esters in cellular function, transport of fatty acids, the involvement of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways in cell survival and apoptosis, the alteration of functional responses of the prostaglandin E and thromboxane receptors, and recent results on controlling platelet-activating-factor metabolism.
