How lipid droplets stay in shape

Source: ASBMB Today Lipid droplets, or LDs, are key lipid storage structures in cells. One might think that they simply result from lipid molecules separating out within the aqueous intracellular environment. However, LDs are well-organized organelles surrounded by proteins that act as gatekeepers that tightly control lipid entry and exit. One LD-associated protein is perilipin […]
