Controlled storage of biological energy: The role of plasma lipoproteins

Lancet
D G CrampM R Wills

Abstract

A scheme is advanced whereby plasma-lipoproteins form an integrated controlled pathway for storage of energy as triglyceride. The importance of insulin within this system is indicated and the consequence of possible errors considered. Changes secondary to organ disease are found to fit within the proposed pathway. Although many refinements remain to be added, this hypothesis seems to form a plausible framework within which lipoprotein abnormality and the underlying condition may be better understood and thereby treated.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
