Reviewing the most current research in this rapidly expanding yet resource-limited field, Lipid-Mediated Signaling provides a much needed examination of a decade's worth of research tying pathologic disorders such as cancer and autoimmunity to aberrant or deregulated signal transduction processes. It considers particular cells, tissues, and organ systems, and discusses recent efforts to identify the various signaling proteins that govern their behavior. The book divides its material into five sections: fatty acid metabolism, eicosanoid formation, acyl hydrolase activity, phospholipids and nuclear signaling, and gene expression. It includes contributions from a number of pioneering experts in this emerging field.
