Lipid droplets (LDs) are key cellular organelles involved in lipid storage and mobilisation. While the major signalling cascades and many of the regulators of lipolysis have been identified, the cellular interactions involved in lipid mobilisation and release remain largely undefined. In non-adipocytes, LDs are small, mobile and interact with other cellular compartments. In contrast, adipocytes primarily contain very large, immotile LDs. The striking morphological differences between LDs in… CONTINUE READING
