LIPOPROTEINS

  • They are complex biomolecules formed of -
  • Triglycerides, Phospholipids, Cholesterol and Proteins.
  • Lipoproteins are of four types -

Chylomicrons,                                        High density lipoproteins (HDL),

Low density lipoprotein (LDL)                 Very low density lipoproteins (VLDL).

  • Membranes are also lipoprotein structure.
  • Lipids are transported in blood plasma and lymph in the form of lipoproteins.
