This class contains pathways of synthesis of various fatty acids and other lipids, including phospholipids, lipid A, and neutral fats and oils. Synthesis of the waxy materials on the surfaces of leaves are including here as well as in the class, "Epidermal structures". Lipids fulfill many functions, including being components of the plasma membrane of all cells and the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria.
