Translated title of the contribution: Biochemical and physiological basis of lipid metabolism

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey


The basic experience and the important advances in the last decades in our understanding of the different pathways of lipid metabolism are reviewed. Discovering the details of intracellular lipoprotein synthesis, the central role of enzymes, such as the lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and the cholesterolester transfer protein (CETP), new receptors and the manifold functions of lipases contributed to a better recognition of pathological conditions leading to hyperlipoproteinaemias and atherosclerosis.
