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.
