It is well known that raised plasma triglycerides (TG) are positively linked to the development of coronary heart disease. However, triglycerides circulate in a range of distinct lipoprotein subfractions and the relative atherogenicity of these subfractions is not clear. In this study, three fractions of triglyceride rich lipoprotein (TRL) were isolated from normolipidaemic males according to their differing Svedberg flotation (S(f)) rates: chylomicron (CM, S(f)>400), very low-density… CONTINUE READING
