New research tools have revealed many surprising aspects of the
dynamic nature of lipids and their participation in processes such
as recognition, intra- and inter-cellular signalling, deterrence
and defence against pathogens, membrane trafficking and protein
function. This is in addition to new information on the more
established roles of plant lipids as structural components of
membranes and as long-term storage products. Plant lipids are also
increasingly being seen as sources of a new generation of
environmentally friendly, biodegradable and renewable industrial
products, including biopolymers and high grade lubricants.
This volume provides a broad overview of plant lipid research
and its many applications, linking the various disciplines and
providing an interesting and wide-ranging perspective on this
fast-moving field. Extensive lists of references are provided,
totalling well over two thousand non-redundant citations and
offering a point of entry to the detailed literature.
This is a book for researchers and professionals in plant
biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology and genetics, in
both the academic and industrial sectors.
