The aim of this book is to provide a reference for researchers in the field of trace mineral and lipid metabolism. It addresses the influence of dietary copper status on cholesterol, lipoprotein and apolipoprotein metabolism as well as lipoprotein receptor characteristics. This fascinating volume critically reviews alterations in long chain fatty acid, prostaglandin and cardiac lipid metabolism, as well as arterial morphology induced by copper deficiency. Furthermore, it presents the theoretical relationship plus the anatomical, chemical and physiological similarities between copper deficiency and ischemic heart disease. This reading is indispensable for investigators interested in the role of copper in lipid metabolism.
