Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a growing problem worldwide. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is characterized by an abnormal accumulation of triglyceride-rich lipid droplets (LDs) in the liver, which can lead to liver inflammation and metabolic disturbances. Lipid droplets are dynamic organelles that have recently gained considerable scientific interest. Their formation and growth are regulated processes requiring the participation of many endoplasmic reticulum- (ER-) and LD… CONTINUE READING
