Tensing Up for Lipid Droplet Formation

Published inDevelopmental Cell, vol. 41, no. 6, p. 571-572
Publication date2017
Abstract

Lipid droplets are fat storage organelles in cells that physically resemble stable oil-water emulsion droplets. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Ben M'barek et al. (2017) show that the resemblance is more than superficial: physical principles governing emulsion stability also control lipid droplet nucleation and growth.
