Abstract

A number of membrane trafficking components are associated with lipid droplets (LDs) and/or are involved in their biogenesis. In this issue of The EMBO Journal, Li et al (2016) show that the mammalian TRAPPII (TRAnsport Protein Particle) complex acts as an LD-associated GEF for Rab18, thereby regulating LD homeostasis. © 2017 EMBO.
