Lipids, along with proteins and nucleic acids, are important components of the biological membranes and structural units that make up cells. In addition, lipids are used for energy storage and metabolism and serve as important signaling molecules in a variety of cellular activities. Lipid metabolism is the process of synthesis, decomposition, and transportation of lipid substances in the human body, and is an important link in maintaining normal physiological functions of the human body.
Abnormal lipid metabolism can lead to the occurrence of various diseases. During tumor progression, cells utilize lipid metabolism to maintain rapid proliferation, survival, migration, invasion, and metastasis.
