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.
