Plasma Apolipoproteins and Lipoprotein Receptors

Role in the Metabolism of Lipoproteins
  • Howard A. Eder


Developments over the past several years have made it possible to describe in considerable detail most of the steps involved in the metabolism of the plama lipoproteins. These developments have been principally in the understanding of the nature and role of the apolipoproteins and the discovery and characterization of the tissue receptors for lipoproteins. A number of excellent reviews of these subjects have recently appeared (Schaefer et al., 1978a; Scanu and Landsberger, 1980; Brown et al., 1981).
