Term Detail
GO term:lipid storage
Synonym: lipid retention
Synonym: lipid sequestering
Synonym: lipid sequestration
Synonym: retention of lipids
Synonym: sequestering of lipids
Synonym: sequestration of lipid
Synonym: sequestration of lipids
Synonym: storage of lipids
GO id:GO:0019915
Definition:The accumulation and maintenance in cells or tissues of lipids, compounds soluble in organic solvents but insoluble or sparingly soluble in aqueous solvents. Lipid reserves can be accumulated during early developmental stages for mobilization and utilization at later stages of development.
