Lipid Droplets: More Than Just Fat Stores

Lipid Droplets: More Than Just Fat Stores

The researchers used advanced fluorescence microscopy to view lipid droplets in fruit fly embryos. Here, H2Av (fluoresced in green) is present in the cell’s nuclei (the large blobs) and on lipid droplets (the smaller rings). The lipid droplets regulate how fast H2Av enters a cell’s nucleus by storing the H2Av until the nucleus needs it. Credit: University of Rochester image / Zhihuan Li.
