Chylomicrons VLDL and Idl Vldl Remnants

Vldl Idl Triglycerides Chart

Chylomicrons and VLDL are primarily triglyceride particles, although they each have small quantities of cholesterol esters. Chylomicrons transport dietary triglyceride to adipose tissue and muscle, whereas VLDL transport triglyceride synthesized in the liver to these same tissues. Both chylomicrons and VLDL have apoC-II, apoE, and apoB (apoB-48 on chylomicrons and apoB-100 on VLDL). The metabolism of these particles is shown in Figure 1-15-5. Figure 1-15-5.
