cells that contain lipid droplets


Lipids are organic, nonpolar molecules that play key roles in various aspects of drug formulation and delivery. They can be used as vehicles for solubilising active pharmaceutical ingredients, components for creating lipid based delivery systems like liposomes or agents which can be used in lipid-DNA transfection. Lipids are a versatile classification of macromolecules that can be also be tailored to meet the needs of a number of different applications and conditions.
