The only comprehensive one-volume work describing protein-bound lipids

Lipid Modifications of Proteins is the first single-volume publication to provide a comprehensive discussion of the five major kinds of protein-bound lipids. The book examines the biochemical activities involved in covalent attachment of different kinds of lipids to proteins, and it indicates the extent of lipid modifications to proteins. The book also thoroughly evaluates current hypotheses on roles of covalent lipids in protein structure and function. This one-of-a-kind volume is essential for molecular biologists, cell biologists, biochemists, biophysicists, microbiologists, and other researchers interested in the effect of lipids on proteins.
