Mammalian lipid droplets are innate immune hubs integrating cell metabolism and host defense
Lipid droplets (LDs) accumulate in cells to serve as lipid storage organelles. They are also an attractive source of nutrients for many pathogens. Bosch et al. show that various proteins involved...

Now in @ScienceMagazine: @AlbertPol10, @LabParton, & al. show LPS induces innate immune proteins to form complexes on lipid droplets (LDs). This uncouples LDs from mitochondria, altering cellular metabolism! bit.ly/Sci_aay8085 w/ PS by Doug Green: bit.ly/Sci_abe7891 pic.twitter.com/MNsDmPnuQB

FATAL ATTRACTION? Glad to share our study describing that mammalian lipid droplets attract and kill intracellular pathogens. Smart fat!  exciting collaboration with Rob Parton @LabParton science.sciencemag.org/content/370/65…
