Neurolipidology: interactions of nerves, neurotrophic factors, and lipids

George N. Chaldakov, Luigi Aloe


Here we highlight current data of the involvement of cholesterol, lipoproteins and lipoprotein receptors in the neuronal development and of neurotrophic factors in the lipid and glucose metabolism. We term these interactions neurolipidology. And argue that in addition to its implication in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer`s disease, neurolipidology may have wide-ranging potential within a variety of nonneuronal fields, including cardiovascular disease, particularly, atherosclerosis and related disorders.
