1 1 Classes of Lipids fatty acids triacylglycerols phospholipids Fat soluble vitamins steroids glycolipids *waxes * * fatty acids absent eicosanoids

2 2 Functions Energy source –storage compounds (triacyl glycerols) Hydrophobic barriers –membrane constituents (phospholipids & glycoplipids) Functional –protective coverings (waxes) –regulatory properties e.g. coenzymes –hormones (steroids, prostaglandins,vitamins) –signalling e.g. odours

3 3 1.FATTY ACIDS General structure OO C hydrophilic carboxyl group hydrophobic hydrocarbon chain Ionised at pH7amphipathic

4 4 Aggregates of Fatty Acids Surface film micelle Hydrophobic tail Hydrophilic head water

5 5 SATURATED FATTY ACIDS Typical example:stearic acid

6 6 MONOUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS e.g. OLEIC ACID - 18:1

7 7 POLYUNSATURATED ACIDS LINOLEIC ACID - 18:2 Both bonds are cis

9 9 Link between metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids AcetylCoA TCA Cycle Elongation Desaturation Various Fatty Acids Sugars Pyruvate glycolysis mitochondrion Palmitic acid 16.0 Amino acids AcetylCoA

10 10 Synthesis of Fatty Acids: 2 carbon additions Palmitate 16.0 Stearate 18.0 Oleate 18.1(9) Linoleate 18.2 (9,12) Linolenate 18.3 (9,12,15) Arachidonate 20.4 ( ) EICONASOIDS Other poly unsaturated FA elongation desaturation

11 11 Fatty acids: Summary General formula CH 3 (CH 2 ) n COO Amphipathic Structure –C (biological) –unsaturated / mono or polysaturated – cis configuration –branching simple Rarely free

12 12 TRIACYLGLYCEROL

13 13 Adipocyte nucleus triacylglycerol cytoplasm 10μm

14 14 Sperm Whale Spermaceti organ
