Welcome to the Lipids Pathways Portal on WikiPathways

This portal is set up to coordinate the development of lipid pathways and get together the community interested in interactive lipid pathways.

Lipids serve several important biological purposes, such as providing membrane structure, and signalling.

Thanks to the LIPID MAPS team for sharing their pathway knowledge through WikiPathways!

For more details on the LipidMaps pathways, please read the following paper: "A Mouse Macrophage Lipidome" Edward A. Dennis et.al. J Biol Chem. 2010 Dec 17; 285(51): 39976-39985.[1]
