Kinetics of triacylglycerol appearance in endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, and lymph support the hypothesis that endoplasmic reticulum-to-Golgi transport is rate-limiting for lipid absorption. Apolipoprotein B does not appear necessary for initial formation of chylomicron-sized lipid particles in the endoplasmic reticulum, but rather for their movement out of the endoplasmic reticulum and to the Golgi. If peptides are… CONTINUE READING
