A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting
Enzymatic and non-enzymatic oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids leads to the formation of biologically active metabolites, known as lipid mediators. These can be exported extracellularly, and then sequestrated rapidly to stimulate cellular autocrine or paracrine pathways. Lipid mediators are involved in many physiological processes and their dysregulations have been observed in ageing and often linked to various lipid-based diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and metabolic syndrome.
This focus group meeting aims to bring together knowledge of lipid mediators across ageing and inflammatory diseases to underpin their importance to life sciences and clinical applications.
