Enzymes involved in lipid transport

Lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) Lipoprotein lipase Hepatic lipase Mobilising lipase

Lipoproteins consist of a core of hydrophobic non-polar triacylglycerol, surrounded by a shell of polar lipids (phospholipids and cholesterol), in turn surrounded by a shell of protein, which together constitute a hydrophilic complex. Apolipoproteins, the protein components of the lipoproteins, are named ApoA, ApoB, ApoC and ApoE. The density of lipoproteins is inversely proportional to their lipid/protein ratio.
