description
Very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) is a lipoprotein made by the liver (Gibbons et al. 2004) and is one of the five major groups of lipoproteins (chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, IDL and HDL) that enable fats and cholesterol to move within the aqueous environment of the bloodstream. VLDL is assembled in the liver from triglycerides, cholesterol, and apolipoproteins. VLDL uptake into cells, interactions and degradation is described here (Tavori et al. 2015, Go & Mani 2012, Forster et al. 2010, Takahashi et al. 2003, Sorrentino & Zelcer 2012)
