Lipids and eicosanoid signaling

June 17, 2020 | Duration: 50 mins

How does an isozyme of diacyglycerol kinase affect sphingomyelin synthesis? How do various species of phosphatidic acid regulate different physiological functions? And, what are the unique substrate specificities of human phospholipase A2? Researchers at Teikyo University, Chiba University and the University of California, San Diego describe their research into these eicosanoid enigmas in this virtual event.

The talks in this virtual event were originally programmed to take place as an in-person Spotlight Session at the 2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting.
