Discussing a variety of lipid-active enzymes from animal, plant, fungal, and microbial sources, Lipid Biotechnology covers modern techniques in genetic engineering. This text presents the latest advances in supercritical fluid technology, biocatalysis, bioprocess engineering, and crop breeding. Lipid Biotechnology offers a thorough review of the most recent principles and approaches used in the development and design of lipids for cosmetic, industrial and pharmaceutical, and food products. The authors provide in-depth analyses of the structure, metabolic and enzymatic functions and mechanisms, defensive and catalytic properties, industrial uses, and other applications of oxilipins, lipases, and other fatty acids. Related discussions include reaction conditions, reactor design, immobilization technology, and large-scale manufacturing.
