Biochem/physiol Actions

Lipids are transported in blood plasma among the various tissues by water-soluble complexes called lipoproteins, which differ in size as well as in their composition of lipids and proteins. Each lipoprotein complex contains a distinct number of apolipoproteins and lipid.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a solution of 0.15 M NaCl and 0.01% EDTA, pH 7.4
