HNF 150 Notes 02/07/08 1. Roles of Lipoproteins a. Transport Triglycerides from Diet - Chlyomicron b. Transport Triglycerides from Liver - Very Low and Low Density Lipoprotein - Liver will synthesize triglycerides IF: 1. Eat too much carbohydrate 2. Increased levels of blood free fatty acids (from diet) 3. Consume alcohol 4. Increased insulin, decreased glucagon - Send to muscles and other tissues for energy or adipose for storage. - Liver - VLDL – LDL - Tissues c. Reverse Cholesterol Transport - High Density Lipoprotein - 1. Cardiovascular Disease a. Atherosclerosis i. The most common form of CVD ii. Characterized by plaques = soft fatty streaks on the inner walls of arteries, especially at the branch points. iii. “hardening of arteries” iv. Consequences 1. Aneurysm 2. Blood Clots
