Fatty acids and lipopolysaccharides from health to disease - Editorial

Abstract : Fatty acids (FAs) are “building blocks” of lipids (phospholipids triacylglycerol, ceramides/sphingolipids, lipopolysaccharides …). They also act individually as ligands for different receptors and as precursors of bioactive lipid mediators. Thus, FAs play diverse major roles in organisms ranging from energy source and fuel storage, constituents of membrane lipids, to cellular signaling and regulatory molecules. However, the fate, metabolism and function of FAs depend on their biochemical structures: acyl-chain length, number and location of double-bonds.
