The yeast lipin orthologue Pah1p is important for biogenesis of lipid droplets
Pah1p promotes lipid droplet assembly independent of its role in triacylglycerol synthesis and may have implications for drug discovery and drug design.
Compartmentation of Triacylglycerol Accumulation in Plants*
Triacylglycerols from plants, familiar to most people as vegetable oils, supply 25% of dietary calories to the developed world and are increasingly a source for renewable biomaterials and fuels.
An intimate collaboration between peroxisomes and lipid bodies
Using oleic acid–cultured Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system, evidence is provided that lipid bodies and peroxisomes have a close physiological relationship that promotes the coupling of lipolysis within lipid bodies withperoxisomal fatty acid oxidation.
Biogenesis and functions of lipid droplets in plants
Several other proteins known to be important inLD biogenesis in yeasts and mammals are conserved in plants, suggesting that at least some aspects of LD biogenesis and/or function are evolutionarily conserved.
Metabolic engineering of biomass for high energy density: oilseed-like triacylglycerol yields from plant leaves
The results demonstrate the technical feasibility of a vegetative plant oil production platform and provide for a step change in the bioenergy landscape, opening new prospects for sustainable food, high energy forage, biofuel and biomaterial applications.
Identification of a New Class of Lipid Droplet-Associated Proteins in Plants1[C][W][OPEN]
It is proposed that small rubber particle protein-like proteins are involved in the general process of binding and perhaps the stabilization of lipid-rich particles in the cytosol of plant cells and that the avocado and Arabidopsis protein members reveal a new aspect of the cellular machinery that is involved inThe packaging of triacylglycerols in plant tissues.
Lipid Droplet-Associated Proteins (LDAPs) Are Required for the Dynamic Regulation of Neutral Lipid Compartmentation in Plant Cells1
Characterization of three plant-specific, lipid droplet-associated proteins in Arabidopsis revealed that LDAPs are required for the maintenance and regulation of LDs in plant cells and perform nonredundant functions in various physiological contexts, including stress response and postgerminative growth.

The widespread regulation of vertebrate physiology by this class of lipid mediators and the conservation of the mechanisms for NAE formation, perception and degradation in higher plants raises the possibility that the metabolism of NAEs represents an evolutionarily conserved lipid signaling pathway that regulates an array of physiological processes in multicellular eukaryotes.
Substrate selectivities and lipid modulation of plant phospholipase D alpha, -beta, and -gamma.
The results have identified PS- and NAPE-hydrolyzing PLDs and have indicated an important role for lipid composition in regulating the substrate selectivity of PLD beta and -gamma.
Phospholipase activity during plant growth and development and in response to environmental stress
Abstract Phospholipid catabolism is essential to cell function and encompases a variety of processes including metabolic channeling of unusual fatty acids, membrane reorganization and degradation,
