Lipoproteins Composed of lipids and proteins Important role in lipid transport Implicated in cardiovascular disease Protein portion is called apolipoprotein Important structurally and functionally One or more in each lipoprotein Have a role in signaling and recognition Can be used to evaluate potential cardiovascular risk 2

Lipoproteins Chylomicrons are lipoproteins and transport exogenous dietary lipids Other types transport endogenous lipids Very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) Intermediary lipoprotein (IDL) Low density lipoprotein (LDL) High density lipoprotein (HDL) Different types differ in lipid composition, apolipoprotein composition, physical properties, and metabolic function 4
