Lipoproteins, LDL
MeSH HeadingLipoproteins, LDL
Tree NumberD10.532.515
Tree NumberD12.776.521.550
Annotation/ defic: consider also HYPOBETALIPOPROTEINEMIAS
Scope NoteA class of lipoproteins of small size (18-25 nm) and light (1.019-1.063 g/ml) particles with a core composed mainly of CHOLESTEROL ESTERS and smaller amounts of TRIGLYCERIDES. The surface monolayer consists mostly of PHOSPHOLIPIDS, a single copy of APOLIPOPROTEIN B-100, and free cholesterol molecules. The main LDL function is to transport cholesterol and cholesterol esters to extrahepatic tissues.
