Publisher: Springer

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 408 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.0in.Glycerophospholipid and sphingolipid-derived lipid mediators facilitate the transfer of messages not only from one cell to another but also from one subcellular organelle to another. These molecules are not only components of neural membranes but also storage depots for lipid mediators. Information on the generation and involvement of lipid mediators in neurological disorders is scattered throughout the literature in the form of original papers and reviews. This book will provide readers with a comprehensive description of glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid and cholesterol-derived lipid mediators and their involvement in neurological disorders.

Synopsis:

Glycerophospholipid and sphingolipid-derived lipid mediators facilitate the transfer of messages not only from one cell to another but also from one subcellular organelle to another. These molecules are not only components of neural membranes but also storage depots for lipid mediators. Information on the generation and involvement of lipid mediators in neurological disorders is scattered throughout the literature in the form of original papers and reviews. This book will provide readers with a comprehensive description of glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid and cholesterol-derived lipid mediators and their involvement in neurological disorders.

From the Back Cover:

Not only do glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid, and cholesterol-derived lipid mediators facilitate the transfer of messages from one cell to another, they also facilitate communication among subcellular organelles. Hot Topics in Neural Membrane Lipidology provides readers with a cutting-edge, comprehensive review of these lipid mediators, their roles and association with neurological disorders, and the future direction of research on the topic. 

This monograph provides readers with critical data and is particularly accessible to neuroscience graduate students, teachers, and researchers. It can be used as a supplemental text for a range of neuroscience courses. Clinicians and pharmacologists will find this book useful for understanding molecular aspects of lipid mediators in acute neural trauma like stroke, spinal cord trauma, head injury, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and Huntington disease.

About the Author:

Akhlaq A. Farooqui is a leader in the field of brain phospholipases A2, bioactive ether lipid metabolism, and glutamate-mediated neurotoxicity. He has discovered the stimulation of plasmalogen-selective phospholipase A2 activity in brains from patients with Alzheimer disease, and published cutting edge research on the generation and identification of glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid, and cholesterol-derived lipid mediators in kainic acid neurotoxicity. Dr. Farooqui has authored three monographs: Glycerophospholipids in Brain: Phospholipase A2 in Neurological Disorders (2007); Neurochemical Aspects of Excitotoxicity (2008); and Metabolism and Functions of Bioactive Ether Lipids in Brain (2008). All monographs are published by Springer, New York.
