About the LRD
The Lipid Research Division is a division of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The LRD represents lipid research scientists of the society and addresses concerns that include, but are not limited to, national and international visibility, representation at the annual meeting and on scientific advisory panels, and increased funding for lipid research. Additionally, the LRD serves as a platform within the ASBMB to highlight progress in lipid research and to foster communication among lipid researchers and between lipid researchers and the broader ASBMB membership.
We invite all lipid researchers to join the division. ASBMB membership is encouraged but not required.

A study found that a nuclear envelope-localized protein depends on cardiolipin for translocation to its target membrane.
A fortuitous observation shows that endogenous bacterial compounds react readily with conserved lysine residues.
These proteins — along with their siblings, floppases and scramblases — catalyze the flip-flop movement of phospholipid between the two leaflets of a membrane.
The aim of the ILS is to foster international community-wide coordination and communication to create lipidomics-specific guidelines for good scientific practice and future development.
These ligands are secreted to the cell membrane bound to their dedicated transporter. The authors describe the structure of this complex with the essential lipid.
