NMR of lipids

This chapter reviews articles on NMR and lipids published between June 2012 and May 2013. The number of papers devoted to NMR utilization to investigate lipids, their structures, behavior in native and artificial membranes, interactions with proteins and peptides, as well as with low molecular weight molecules, biomedical applications and new methods is growing (over 1300 articles in Pub-Med) although we included here only a selection of those papers that were accessible and peer-reviewed. The reviewed material has been arranged in chapters devoted to the structure and function of lipids in membranes, their roles in membrane-related processes including lipid-mediated signal transduction, interactions of lipids with membrane and soluble proteins, peptides and various low molecular weight compounds, lipid metabolomics, visualization of lipid related processes in biomedicine, lipid-based diagnosis, and methodological approaches.
