Subpopulations of lipoproteins within the high density lipoprotein subfraction 3 (HDL3) have been isolated from human plasma and characterized in terms of their chemical composition and particle size. Since HDL3 are the major substrates for the esterification of plasma cholesterol, and thus play a central role in the transport of cholesterol through the plasma, these studies also examined the relative capacities of different HDL3 subpopulations to interact with lecithin: cholesterol… CONTINUE READING
