The Challenge of the Lipoprotein Molecule

  • Hubert Peeters
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 15)


The primaeval outline of a lipoprotein appeared in the course of 1926 and 27 when Macheboeuf presented a few short papers on the phospholipids of plasmaproteins. In 1928 he defended his doctoral thesis: Recherches sur les stérols, les lipides et les protéides du sérum et du plasma sanguin“, Thèse pour le Doctorat ès Sciences, Paris. This NATO Advanced Study Institute thus coïncides with the 50th anniversary of the fundamental work from which the modern concept of lipoproteins emerged.
