Lipoprotein Lipid Exchange in Biological Systems

  • Frank P. Bell


Lipoproteins and membranes are highly organized structures that are not, with the possible exception of myelin, structurally static but rather are in a dynamic state. One of the interesting features of these structures is the exchange of lipid molecules that can occur between lipoproteins or membranes as well as between lipoproteins and membranes.
