Mixed Pickering emulsions were prepared by blending anionic nanocellulose-stabilized lipid droplets with cationic nanochitin-stabilized lipid droplets. Changes in the surface potential, particle size,...
Lipid droplets are fat storage organelles present in most eukaryotic cells. They consist of a neutral lipid core containing mostly triglycerides and sterol esters and covered by a monolayer of phospho...
Replication complexes of (+)RNA viruses of eukaryotes are associated with specialized membranous domains, termed replication organelles. How these structures develop is poorly understood. In a recent ...
Despite several published studies, the impact of emulsion droplet size on lipid oxidation rates is unclear. This could be because oil-in-water emulsions are typically polydisperse and the oxidation ra...
Triglyceride is the main lipid class in nature, found as droplets in both living systems and man-made products (such as manufactured foods and drugs). Characterizing triglyceride droplets in situ in t...
The purpose of this study is to compare the changes in blood lipids and feelings of satiety after consumption of acid stable or acid unstable oil-in-water emulsions in which the droplets a...
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Cutera Secret RF device.
To assess the safety, efficacy and patient satisfaction associated with the treatment of facial wrinkles using the Secret Micro-Needle Fractional RF System® (Ilooda Co., Ltd., Suwon, Sout...
The purpose of this study is to compare the changes in blood lipids and feelings of satiety after consumption of oil-in-water emulsions in which the droplets are in either the liquid or so...
Postpartum depression is common, yet only 20% of women seek treatment. Online support groups are a potential means of providing accessible mental health care during this time. Mother Matte...
A perilipin that localizes to LIPID DROPLETS; CYTOPLASM; ENDOSOMES; and PLASMA MEMBRANE, especially in MACROPHAGES. It functions as a transporter of free fatty acids to lipid droplets to promote their biogenesis and growth. It is also required for the transport of the MANNOSE-6-PHOSPHATE RECEPTOR from endosomes to the TRANS-GOLGI NETWORK. Its structure consists of four helix bundles that interact with the hydrophobic lipid droplet surface.
A perilipin that is expressed by many different cell types. It binds FATTY ACIDS and CHOLESTEROL, stabilizes TRIGLYCERIDES, and localizes to both the surface and hydrophobic core of LIPID DROPLETS, as well as the ENDOPLASMIC RECTICULUM and PLASMA MEMBRANE in MACROPHAGES. It also plays a central role in the biogenesis of lipid droplets and FOAM CELLS and is highly expressed by macrophages at atherosclerotic lesions in human arteries along with the INFLAMMATION markers TNF-ALPHA; MCP-1 RECEPTOR; and IL-6.
Proteins, such as PERILIPINS, that localize to LIPID DROPLETS either transiently or constitutively.
Dynamic cytoplasmic organelles found in almost all cells. They consist of a central core of LIPIDS surrounded by a phospholipid monolayer studded with surface proteins, and are involved in LIPID METABOLISM and storage.
A family of vertebrate and insect lipid droplet associated proteins. They consist of a conserved N-terminal PAT domain (an alpha-helical region of about 110 amino acids), an 11-mer repeat region, and lipid-binding hydrophobic regions or 4-helix bundles near their C-termini. Perilipins transiently or constitutively localize to LIPID DROPLETS in ADIPOCYTES and FOAM CELLS, especially in regions adjacent to the PLASMA MEMBRANE and ENDOPLASMIC RECTICULUM. They are critical for lipid droplet synthesis and homeostasis as well as the regulation of lipid metabolism. Genetic variations in perilipins are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS; OBESITY; and DIABETES MELLITUS.
