Understanding the Lipid Droplet Proteome and Protein Targeting

Dev Cell. 2018 Jan 8;44(1):1-2. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2017.12.017. Epub 2018 Jan 8.


Reporting in this issue of Developmental Cell, Bersuker et al. (2018) adapt APEX technology to lipid droplets for a more accurate view of the droplet proteome and Prévost et al. (2018) provide important insights into the basis of droplet protein targeting that altogether extend the understanding of this organelle.
