Organizes lipids into eight well-defined categories that cover eukaryotic and prokaryotic sources. LIPID MAPS filters data in functional hierarchies involving lipids, reactions, and pathways. It is a multi-institutional effort created in 2003 and uses a systems biology approach and sophisticated mass spectrometers (MS), all of the major — and many minor — lipid species in mammalian cells. The database quantitates the changes in species in response to perturbation.
Current tandem mass spectral libraries for lipid annotations in metabolomics are limited in size and diversity. LipidBlast is a freely available computer-generated tandem mass spectral library of 212,516 spectra covering 119,200 compounds from 26 lipid compound classes, including phospholipids, glycerolipids, bacterial lipoglycans and plant glycolipids.
Gathers structures and annotations of biologically relevant lipids. LMSD is a database of lipids that has several features: (i) usage of hierarchical classification and consistent nomenclature based on a comprehensive classification scheme proposed by LIPID MAPS, (ii) a unique LIPID MAPS identifier (LM ID) assignment to all structures, (iii) no duplicate structures and, (iv) ability to search database using structure.
A knowledge resource for lipids and their biology. SwissLipids provides curated knowledge of lipid structures and metabolism which is used to generate an in silico library of feasible lipid structures. These are arranged in a hierarchical classification that links mass spectrometry analytical outputs to all possible lipid structures, metabolic reactions, and enzymes. SwissLipids provides a reference namespace for lipidomic data publication, data exploration and hypothesis generation.
A database of theoretical lipid structures derived from a seed set of lipid sub classes and some lipid chemical space constraints agreed upon with experts in the field. This work aims to reduce the gap by developing an equivalent resource to UniProt called 'LipidHome', providing theoretically generated lipid molecules and useful metadata.
An open, publicly free database of natural lipids including fatty acids, glycerolipids, sphingolipids, steroids, and various vitamins. LipidBank contains more than 6000 unique molecular structures (ChemDraw cdx format, MDL MOL format), their lipid names (common name, IUPAC), spectral information (mass, UV, IR, NMR and others), and most importantly, literature information.
Collects, studies and diffuses information on all aspects of lipidology. Cyberlipid Center provides information about lipid and sources and composition of fats and oils. It includes lipid description, technique of analysis and information about lipid peroxidation. The database also stores recently published technical improvements and provides a chronological history of lipid science. It aims to establish contacts between students, teachers, scientists and technicians.
An evolving pathway map for sphingolipid biosynthesis that includes many of the known sphingolipids and glycosphingolipids arranged according to their biosynthetic origin(s). SphinGOMAP promotes dialog about the “knowns” and “unknowns” of sphingolipid biosynthesis and lead to experiments to refine this model.
