Accumulation of triolein (red) inside a lipid bilayer (blue): the first steps to lipid droplet biogenesis. See http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0012811
umami
The binding of Glutamate and GMP to the Umami receptor, and the subsequent closure of the substrate binding pathway. See http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1742-4658.2012.08690.x/abstract
droplet
Coarse-grained simulation of a 25 nm lipid droplet. Triolein (red) and cholesteryl oleate (green) comprise the core, while the phospholipids (blue) form a monolayer. See http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jp506693d and http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jp503223z

curvature
The concept of Flexoelectricity. Dipoles pointing in opposite directions in lipid leaflets lead to curvature, when an electrical potential is applied across the membrane. See http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jpcb.6b03439
