Focuses on a study of the biosynthesis of lipids, lipoxygenase and lipase in streptomyces cultured in diverse media and at variable stages of growth, to establish possible interrelations between the biosynthetic processes. Link of the increase in lipid content of organisms cultured in different media; Formation of fatty acid free radicals by the lipolytic enzymes; Change of the amount of lipid hydroperoxides accumulated in the course of culturing.

    The transfer of lipids between the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the plastid in Arabidopsis involves the TRIGALACTOSYLDIACYLGLYCEROL (TGD) proteins. Lipid exchange is thought to be bidirectional based on the presence of specific lipid molecular species in Arabidopsis mutants impaired in the...

    Endocannabinoids, defined in 1995 as endogenous agonists of cannabinoid receptors, their anabolic and catabolic pathways, and the enzymes involved in these pathways (the "endocannabinoid enzymes"), are the subject of this review. A general strategy seems to apply to the regulation of the levels...

    A two-enzyme system involving a lipase from a Pseudomonas sp. and an extract of potato tubers containing lipoxygenase was used to convert triacylglycerols to 9-hydroperoxy fatty acids. Highest yields (up to 25%) were obtained with 1 to 20 g l-1 trilinolein as substrate after 5 h under O2 at pH 6...

    Fatty acids (FA) and lipids are well known regulators of plant defense. Our previous studies have shown that components of prokaryotic (plastidal) FA biosynthesis pathway regulate various aspects of plant defense. Here, we investigated the defense related roles of the soluble acyl CoA binding...

    The enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase (ENR) is the last enzyme in the fatty acid elongation cycle. Unlike most enzymes in this essential pathway, ENR displays an unusual diversity among organisms. The growing interest in ENRs is mainly due to the fact that a variety of both synthetic and...

    In the biosynthesis of fatty acids, the β-ketoacylacyl carrier protein (ACP) synthases catalyze chain elongation by the addition of two-carbon units derived from malonyl-ACP to an acyl group bound to either ACP or CoA. The crystal structure of β-ketoacyl synthase II from Escherichia coli...

    The article offers information on a common metabolic signature of malignant cells known as heightened lipogenesis. It discusses how newly synthesized fatty acids are quickly incorporated into lipid stores and how they are made available for cellular functions. It also investigates the effect of...

    The key to enzyme function is the maintenance of an appropriate balance between molecular stability and structural flexibility. The lid domain which is very important for "interfacial activation" is the most flexible part in the lipase structure. In this work, rational design was applied to...
