The article discusses the 3rd Australian Lipid Meeting (ALM3) organized by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne, Australia from November 21-22, 2016. It mentions the topics discussed during the meeting which include metabolic diseases, neurodegeneration, and lipid signaling, the presentation of research regarding the diversity of phospholipid in human red blood cells (RBC), and the discussion on the development in lipidomics.

    The glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) catalyzes the binding and transport of glycolipids, but not phospholipids or neutral lipids. With its all-alpha helical fold, it is the founding member for a new superfamily, however its biological role still remains unclear. We have analyzed changes in the...

    We report serial neurodegenerative changes on neuroimaging in a rare peroxisomal disease called D-bifunctional protein deficiency. The pattern of posterior to anterior demyelination with white matter disease resembles X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy. We feel this case is important to (1) highlight...
