Classification of lipids - fatty acids, .triglycerides, glycosylglycerols, phospholipids, waxes,
prostaglandins. Lipid micelles, monolayers, bilayers. Lipoprotein systems, transport protein
of blood plasma. Oxidation of fatty acids. Microsomal peroxidation of polyunsaturated fatty
acids. Metabolism of unsaturated fatty acids; essential and nonessential. Metabolism of
acylglycerols. Degradation and turnover of phospholipids. Cholesterol biosynthesis and
breakdown. Formation of ketone bodies. Integration of lipid metabolism. Acetic acid as a
central precursor for biosynthesis of lipids.
