JBC: CARS microscopy gives new insights into the remodeling of lipid droplets during lipolysis and growth in adipocytes

Using label-free coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy, LIPOTOX scientists report in the Journal of Biological Chemistry that LDs grow by transfer of lipids from one organelle to another. Read more.
