Nutrition

I need to know in what cells, liver, muscle, adipose, or all of the above do the following reactions take place:
fatty acid synthesis
Synthesis of cholesterol
synthesis of LDL and HDL
lipolysis
lipogenesis
synthesis of glucose from glucogenic carbon chains
synthesis of fatty acids from ketogenic carbon chains

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words " lipogenesis " to get these possible sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipogenesis
http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/lipogenesis
(Broken Link Removed)

Using conbinations of your other terms as key words in your own searches should get you the other answers you seek.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
