The critical role of fatty acid channeling between membrane and storage lipids

When lipid meta­bolism breaks down - von Prof. Dr Sepp D. Kohlwein, Dr Neha Chauhan, Dr Harald F. Hofbauer

Although as thin as the skin of a soap bubble, they are nonetheless vitally ­important. Biological membranes, 10,000 times thinner than a human hair, ­form a physiological barrier to all the cells in our body and are thus responsible for mediating exchanges between the cell interior and the external environment. Minor changes to their composition, such as those involved in lipid meta­bolism disorders, can have fatal consequences for events within...
