Lipidomics update - February 2015
The lipidomics update provides an overview of developments in lipid research. Each month we offer a fresh collection of research, news and events for the specialist and the interested non-specialist alike.
LIPID MAPS highlights
LIPID MAPS Protocols - Protocols developed by the LIPID MAPS Consortium for equipment and supplies, procedures, and solutions. Procedure protocols include protocols for primary macrophages, treatment with Kdo2-Lipid A, treatment with 25-OHC, subcellular fractionation, extraction and analysis of various lipid categories, and more. Solution protocols include protocols for Kdo2-Lipid A, growth mediums for primary and cultured macrophages, stock solutions, standards, and more.
Lipid of the month
Jasmonic Acid (LMFA02020001), is a C12 fatty acid which is is biosynthesized from linolenic acid by the octadecanoid pathway. It is a plant growth regulator involved in the signaling mechanisms for a variety of conditions including plant defense, wound healing, tuberization, fruit ripening, and senescence Jasmonic acid is also converted to a variety of derivatives including esters such as methyl jasmonate and may also be conjugated to amino acids.
