ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the plasma lipoproteins. Lipids are essential constituents of all cells, and are required for synthesis of certain sex hormones and for energy purposes. These otherwise insoluble compounds are transported through the plasma complexed to various plasma proteins in the form of lipoproteins. Essentially, each lipoprotein consists of a water-soluble surface coat that contains the protein constituent and a core of insoluble lipid. Four classes of plasma lipoproteins are conventionally recognized. They are designated according to their density, which is a function of the relative proportions of protein and lipid in the lipoprotein.
