Humans cannot metabolise the cholesterol ring system
Reverse cholesterol transport is mediated by...
Initially, HDLs are released from the liver with Apo_, in _ form
Cholesterol Efflux Regulatory Protein is found where?
CERP modifies the cholesterol in the pre-beta-HDL
What does LCAT do that makes the pre-beta-HDL spherical?
The cholesterol is reduced
The cholesterol is esterified
The cholesterol is oxidised
CETP- Cholesterol Ester Transfer Protein
CETP transfers cholesterol esters between
The action of CETP makes the HDL smaller
Once the HDL has been made large enough, it returns to the liver to be picked up by
The HDLs picked up transfer the cholesterol to the cell membrane
The returned cholesterol is then excreted as
