Abstract:Lipid droplets (LDs) are essential organelles for cellular energy homeostasis, but how metabolic cues are integrated in their life cycle is unclear. Teixeira et al. find that two protein isoforms, Ldo16 and Ldo45, differentially regulate LD dynamics under nutrient-rich and -deprived conditions, linking energy metabolism and storage.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
