lipoproteins
An important class of serum proteins in which a lipid core with a surface coat of phospholipid monolayer is packaged with specific proteins (apolipoproteins). Classified according to density: chylomicrons, large low density particles; very low density (VLDL) ; low density (LDL) and high density (HDL) species. Important in lipid transport, especially cholesterol transport.
