Abstract

The storage and remobilization of lipids as a reservoir for energy and metabolic building blocks is a central feature of organisms throughout all kingdoms of life. Surprisingly, little is known about lipid droplets (LDs), the organelles responsible for lipid storage on a cellular level. By the use of an automated microscope system, we here present different fluorescence based approaches to analyze the dynamics as well as the effectors of LD morphology and subcellular positioning.
