Nanoplatforms have many potential applications, including delivering targeted drugs to the cancer cells. These nanotechnologies can be used to deliver drugs to a variety of sites in the body and also for photothermal therapy. Various in vitro and in vivo analysis have been conducted on this platform, including studies on two cancer cell lines. Researchers have also used it to examine the effect of a fatty acid desaturase on the physiology of the body.
Lipid metabolism is a key aspect of human function, contributing to cellular structure and providing energy. It also functions as a powerful signal for intracellular communication. The body makes lipids through diet and de novo synthesis within cells. This complex process involves multiple pathways and is tightly regulated in a healthy individual.
