Figure 1

Serial EM sections of liver tissue showing the presence of a nuclear lipid droplet. None of these 30 consecutive serial sections showed any contact between the LD and the nuclear envelope, demonstrating the occurrence of an independent nuclear LD. Arrows indicate the LD in the first and last sections of the series in which it was possible to visualize the LD. ld: lipid droplet; n: nucleus; cy: cytoplasm.
