Sort: Oldest first
A class of lipoproteins that transport triglycerides from the intestine and liver to adipose and muscle tissues. Synthesized by the liver, they contain primarily triglycerides in their lipid cores, with some cholesterol esters. As their triglycerides are cleaved by endothelial lipoprotein lipase and transferred to hepatic tissues, the VLDL (very-low-density lipoprotein) particles lose most of their apolipoprotein C and become intermediate-density lipoproteins.

Word of the day
- a threadlike extension of nerve cell Slender processes of neurons, especially the prolonged axons that conduct nerve impulses. One units trunk; it is axis process a neuron and medullated, i. e. white substance Schwann (myelin), medullated; either the medullated non-axis-cylinder or may not be surrounded by primitive sheath neurilemma, so that there are four forms of nerve-fibers.
