Liposomes have numerous uses as biochemical and biophysical tools: as vehicles for the delivery of both water and of oil-soluble materials to the cell; as immunological adjuvants; as substrates for the study of membrane properties such as rotational or translational diffusion in the plane of the membrane; and as intermediates in the construction of bilayers large enough for the study of electrical properties of membranes.

Liposomes Lipid Vesicles Liposome Formulations 294 150x150

Lipids traditionally have been viewed as serving two functions: to form cellular membranes and to serve as energy stores. During the last two decades, a new role for lipids has taken center stage: lipids can act as signalling molecules. This book deals with a variety of lipids that have been shown to be messengers. Leading scientists explore all known lipid classes except steroid hormones. Researchers and educators in biochemistry as well as in molecular and cellular biology will appreciate this volume.
