General description

Lipid droplets (LDs) are organelles that store lipids as reservoirs of metabolic energy and membrane lipid precursors, and they have been identified in the nucleus of some cells. LDs can be found in most eukaryotic cells. Most prominent are LDs in adipocytes, which make up most of the cellular volume, but other metabolically active cell types, such as liver or muscle cells, also have abundant LDs. LDs are unusual organelles in that they are bound by a monolayer of surface phospholipids, into which specific proteins are embedded, such as perilipins and metabolic enzymes. The cell biology of LDs as cellular organelles is only beginning to be unraveled. Avanti now offers a series of fluorescently-labeled mono-, di-, and triglycerides, which are useful for studying these important cellular organelles.

The effects of lowering the temperature from 25 degrees C to 2-8 degrees C on carbohydrate metabolism by plant cells are considered. Particular emphasis is placed on the mechanism of cold-induced sweetening in tubers of potato (Solanum tuberosum). Temperatures between...

Lipid droplets (LDs) are lipid storage organelles that grow or shrink, depending on the availability of metabolic energy. Proteins recruited to LDs mediate many metabolic functions, including phosphatidylcholine and triglyceride synthesis. How the LD protein composition is tuned to the supply...

How proteins specifically localize to the phospholipid monolayer surface of lipid droplets (LDs) is being unraveled. We review here the major known pathways of protein targeting to LDs and suggest a classification framework based on the localization origin for the...

Lipid droplets (LDs) are sometimes found in the nucleus of some cells. In this issue, Ohsaki et al. (2016. J. Cell Biol. http://dx.doi.org/10.1083/jcb.201507122) show that the nuclear membrane, promyelocytic leukemia bodies, and the protein PML-II play a role in nuclear...

Long underappreciated as important cellular organelles, lipid droplets are finally being recognized as dynamic structures with a complex and interesting biology. In light of this newfound respect, we discuss emerging views on lipid droplet biology and speculate on the major...
