Quote The backbone structural protein is the truncated apolipoprotein B-48, which is the main non-exchangeable protein. However, it does contain other apolipoproteins, including ApoA1, A2, A3, A5 C2, C3, and ApoE. Chylomicrons have a density below 0.94 g/ml and remain at the origin of lipoprotein electrophoresis. Their major lipid is triglycerides, which comprise more than 75% of the particle, and they have the lowest protein content of all lipoproteins of around 2 percent, explaining why they have such low density on ultracentrifugation. Ok Lustig says it's mostly VLDL when fasting. Both when non-fasting Edited February 14 by InquilineKea Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
