Regulation of lipid metabolism

June 16, 2020 | Duration: 48 mins.

Just how many ways can fatty acids be synthesized in bacteria? What role does squalene monooxygenase play in cholesterol homeostasis? And how do intestinal fatty acid desaturases affect overall physiology? In this virtual event, researchers present their findings on the regulation of lipid metabolism in systems ranging from Escherichia coli to human intestines.

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