Lipidomics unveils the complexity of the lipidome in metabolic diseases

PMCID: 5786598
PMID: 29374337
DOI: 10.1186/s40169-018-0182-9

[…] one or more internal standard. Ideally, a data analysis platform should also include automated searches against metabolite databases such as lipid MAPS (, Lipid Bank (, LipidHOME ( and LipidBlast ( [, ]. Freely available software which combines one or more of t […]


From chromatogram to analyte to metabolite. How to pick horses for courses from the massive web resources for mass spectral plant metabolomics

PMCID: 5499862
PMID: 28520864
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix037

[…] hy Sequences (LOBSTAHS) [], Lipid-Pro [], lipid data analyzer (LDA) [], and LipidQA [] are all tools for processing, annotating, and analyzing lipidomics data. Lipids databases include LIPID MAPS [], LIPIDBANK [], LipidBlast [], and in silico generated lipids databases LipidHome [], SwissLipids [] ,and ARALIP []. […]


LipidFrag: Improving reliability of in silico fragmentation of lipids and application to the Caenorhabditis elegans lipidome

PLoS One
PMCID: 5344313
PMID: 28278196
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0172311

[…] nergy, building blocks of membranes, and signaling.Several efforts have been made to catalog lipid diversity. Lipidat was one of the first electronic lipid databases [], and contained 11,000 records, LIPIDBANK (initiated in 1989) contains just over 7,000 records as of 2013, and can still be browsed on the ( [].The Lipid Maps database and classification system structure databas […]


Recent advances in expanding the coverage of the lipidome

PMCID: 5312421
PMID: 27915214
DOI: 10.1016/j.copbio.2016.11.008

[…] ‘pipeline’. For instance, the generation of lipid databases and the tools to cross-compare them with experimentally obtained lipidomics data has been an important development. Examples are LipidMaps, LipidBank, LipidHome, LipidBlast, and LipidSearch [, , , , ]. The lipidomics field has particularly benefited from continued developments in mass spectrometry; the ever-increasing sensitivity, resolut […]


Bioprospecting of Marine Macrophytes Using MS Based Lipidomics as a New Approach

Mar Drugs
PMCID: 4820303
PMID: 27005634
DOI: 10.3390/md14030049

[…] ication and quantification. Currently, there is no universal lipid classification or dataset of compounds that can be used off-the-shelf. However, a few lipid databases are already available, such as LipidBank, LIPIDAT and LIPID MAPS, which allow researchers to start making breakthroughs in this research field. The LipidBank [,] classifies lipids into 17 categories, while LIPIDAT [] database conta […]


Structural and Functional Analyses of a Sterol Carrier Protein in Spodoptera litura

PLoS One
PMCID: 3893073
PMID: 24454688
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0081542

[…] To screen potential compounds that can bind to SlSCPx-2, a set of screening processes were performed using the above SlSCPx-2/AeSCPI-1 complex model (). Firstly, 462 sterols and 731 fatty acids from LipidBank were docked with the protein structure by Surflex module of SYBYL-7.3 package. In the docking process, most of the sterols that had complicated side groups, such as digitogenin, scilliroside […]
