Biophysical regulation of neutral lipids accumulation 

by arthiaparthiam1, 11 septembre 2020

One of our current focus is to understand how lipid surfactants  and membrane physical properties are involved in the formation and utilization of cellular lipid droplets.

Membrane determinants for protein binding to droplet monolayers

Thiam et al. 2013 Nat.Rev.Mol.Cell.Bio

We aim to understand membrane properties and protein features that mediate the specific binding of proteins to droplet monolayers. We use reconstitution assays to probe the interaction of purified proteins with model membranes made by droplet interface bilayers or liposomes. We also probe in a cellular context whether the established parameters affect protein localization.
