Lipidomics Techniques and its Applications in Medical Research
Huang HL., Akhtar Z., Ploeg R., Kessler BM.
Lipids are diverse families of biomolecules that are involved in essential structural as well as signalling roles in biology. The analytical measurement of lipids and their identification & quantitation has become a major research area, in particular in biomedical science as many human pathologies are associated with lipid metabolism disorders. This review provides a brief overview over experimental workflows of lipid isolation and mass spectrometry based detection methods robust enough to study lipid profiles in a clinical context.
