The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Involving Lipids Compounds Soluble in an Organic Solvent But Not or Sparingly in an Aqueous Solvent. Includes Fatty Acids; Neutral Fats Other Fatty Acid Esters and Soaps; Long Chain (fatty) Alcohols and Waxes; Sphingoids and Other Long Chain Bases; Glycolipids Phospholipids and Sphingolipids; and Carotenes Polyprenols Sterols Terpenes and Other Isoprenoids.
A Fatty Acid Oxidation Process That Results in the Complete Oxidation of a Long Chain Fatty Acid. Fatty Acid Beta Oxidation Begins with the Addition of Coenzyme a to a Fatty Acid and Occurs by Successive Cycles of Reactions During Each of Which the Fatty Acid Is Shortened by a Two Carbon Fragment Removed As Acetyl Coenzyme A; the Cycle Continues Until Only Two or Three Carbons Remain (as Acetyl Coa or Propionyl Coa Respectively).
The Directed Movement of Substances (such As Macromolecules Small Molecules Ions) Into Out of or Within a Cell or Between Cells or Within a Multicellular Organism by Means of Some Agent Such As a Transporter or Pore.
The Directed Movement of Long Chain Fatty Acids Into Out of or Within a Cell or Between Cells by Means of Some Agent Such As a Transporter or Pore. a Long Chain Fatty Acid Is a Fatty Acid with a Chain Length Between C13 and C22.
Catalysis of the Transfer of a Group E.g. a Methyl Group Glycosyl Group Acyl Group Phosphorus Containing or Other Groups From One Compound (generally Regarded As the Donor) to Another Compound (generally Regarded As the Acceptor). Transferase Is the Systematic Name For Any Enzyme of EC Class 2.
