Enzymes Metabolizing Phospholipids: From Infancy to Middle Age

  • R. M. C. Dawson
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 101)


To dispel any misconceptions, the middle age refers to the enzymes and not myself. For it must be that research on lipid enzymology has reached no more than middle age and perhaps an early middle age at that. The areas for present prospecting are fairly clearly demarcated but perhaps large new oilfields remain to be discovered.
