Background: Cellular stress leading to cell death induces the formation of lipid droplets. Results: Nutrient deprivation induces LD biogenesis and mobilization, fueling fatty acid oxidation to sustain cell viability. Conclusion: β-Oxidation requires biogenesis and mobilization of LD. Significance: The role of LD in cell survival and β-oxidation might provide new potential targets for antitumor therapy.
