A firehose for phospholipids

2020 Journal of Cell Biology  
All lipid transport proteins in eukaryotes are thought to shuttle lipids between cellular membranes. In this issue, Li et al. (2020. J. Cell Biol.https://doi.org/10.1083/jcb.202001161) show that Vps13 has a channel-like domain that may allow lipids to flow between closely apposed membranes at contact sites.
