1 Lipids in Circulation: Introduction

1. 1 High Density Lipophorin

In all living organisms, lipids serve important structural and functional roles. Since lipids are water-insoluble, the development of a system to transport these hydrophobic molecules within the aqueous milieu of the organism is a premier issue. In mammals, an array of lipoprotein particles with various compositions and functions is known to exist for this purpose; as to the structure of these lipoproteins, a general concept implies a
