The role of lipids in blood cancer: New insights into uncharted territory

Cells contain diverse populations of molecules called lipids, which are organic fatty compounds. Lipid metabolism, the synthesis and breakdown of these lipids, plays a key role in regulating the composition and functions of cells and cell membranes. An enzyme known as ELOVL6 elongates chains of fatty acids and is important in several cellular metabolic processes. However, the relationship between lipid metabolism and blood development and disorders is an area of research with minimal activity so far.
