LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN (LDL) RECEPTORS AND FAMILIAL HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA (FH) FH is a genetic disorder, which arises because of a defect in LDL receptors. We will first consider the metabolism of LDL and its relationship to other plasma lipoproteins. Lipoprotein Composition and Structure: Plasma lipids consist of triacylglycerols (TG), cholesterol (CH), phospholipids (PL), cholesterol esters (CE) and free fatty acid (FFA). FFA upon release from adipose tissue are transported in bloodstream bound to albumen. All other lipids are transported bound to proteins; these complexes are the plasma lipoproteins.

I. PLASMA LIPOPROTEINS They are spherical particles which are constructed so their core contains hydrophobic lipid (TG and CE) and the surface coat consists of more polar lipids (CH and PL) and protein. The original basis for distinguishing among lipoproteins was by the differences in density, which is a function of the amount of core lipid they possess. The major classes of lipoproteins in order of increasing density are: Chylomicrons Very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) Low density lipoprotein (LDL) High density lipoprotein (HDL) (In addition ,there are small amounts of intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL), which has a density between VLDL and LDL. “Common knowledge”: HDL: “good cholesterol; LDL: “bad cholesterol.
