This book summarizes recent advances in understanding the functions of plant and algal lipids in photosynthesis, in development and signaling, and in industrial applications. As readers will discover, biochemistry, enzymology and analytical chemistry, as well as gene knock-out studies have all contributed to our rapidly increasing understanding of the functions of lipids. In the past few decades, distinct physical and biochemical properties of specific lipid classes were revealed in plant and algal lipids and the functional aspects of lipids in modulating critical biological processes have been uncovered.
These chapters from international authors across relevant research fields highlight the underlying evolutionary context of lipid function in photosynthetic unicellular and multicellular organisms. The book goes on to encompass what lipids can do for industrial applications at a time of fascination with plants and algae in carbon fixation and as sources for production of food, energy and novel chemicals. The developmental context is a part of the fresh and engaging perspective that is presented in this work which graduate students and scientists will find both illuminating and useful.
This book titled Lipids in Plant and Algae Development aims at summarizing recent
advances in function of lipids in plant and algal development.
As a primary biomolecule, lipids have structural as well as diverse physiological
functions such as essential constituents of biological membranes, sustainable carbon energy storage, and active signal transducer in cellular processes. In the past
few decades, plant and algal lipids have gone through an established biochemistry,
enzymology, and analytical chemistry, which revealed distinct functions of specific
lipid classes based on their physical and biochemical properties. Upon entry into the
postgenomic era, gene knockout studies on the lipid-related genes rapidly uncover
functional aspects of lipids. Owing to a pile of recent publications that discuss how
lipids modulate critical biological processes in plants and algae, a new axis is being
developed which classifies global lipidome on a physiological basis.
