Lipid bodies are lipid-rich organelles found in the cytoplasm of a variety of cells, including leukocytes. Lipid body morphology, its ability to interact with other organelles and its functions are dictated by its lipid arrangement, as well as its protein composition. Both may vary according to the cell type and with the specific lipid body biogenic stimulatory pathways. Nascent lipid bodies, which are formed in vivo in the course of a variety of immunopathological conditions, are sites of… CONTINUE READING
