Course Title: METABOLISM OF LIPIDS
Number of unit : 2 Units
Office Lecturer: College of Natural Science, Department of Biochemistry
Other Lecturer :
A survey of structure, functions, biosynthesis and catabolism of different classes of lipids. The regulatory aspects of biosynthesis and catabolism of the lipids, especially in relation to homeostasis in the organism will be stressed. The lipids include: fatty acids, glycerides, phosphoglycerides, waxes, prostaglandins, terpenoids and steroids such as bile acids, steroid hormones, carotenoids and vitamin A, vitamin D and terpenoid quinones. Biological membranes. (Pre-requisites BCH 201, 202).
