Lipoproteins are complex molecular assemblies that are key participants in the intricate cascade of extracellular lipid metabolism with important consequences in the formation of atherosclerotic lesions and the development of cardiovascular disease. Multiplexed mass spectrometry MS techniques have substantially improved the ability to characterize the composition of lipoproteins. However, these advanced MS techniques are limited by traditional pre-analytical fractionation techniques that compromise the structural integrity of lipoprotein particles during separation from serum or plasma. Hydrodynamic size in each of 40 size fractions separated by AF4 was measured by dynamic light scattering. Measuring all major lipids and apolipoproteins in each size fraction and in the whole serum, using total of 0.

Functional data is data represented by functions curves or surfaces of a low-dimensional index. Functional data often arise when measurements are collected over time or across locations. In the field of medicine, plasma lipoprotein particles can be quantified according to particle diameter by ion mobility. We wanted to evaluate the utility of functional analysis for assessing the association of plasma lipoprotein size distribution with cardiovascular disease after adjustment for established risk factors including standard lipids. We used a linear model with coefficients, corresponding to measures of lipoprotein mass at each of diameters, and assumed these coefficients varied smoothly along the diameter index. The smooth function was represented as an expansion of natural cubic splines where the smoothness parameter was chosen by assessment of a series of nested splines. Cox proportional hazards models of time to a first cardiovascular disease event were used to estimate the smooth coefficient function among a training set consisting of one half of the participants.
NCBI Bookshelf. Endotext [Internet]. Cholesterol and triglycerides are insoluble in water and therefore these lipids must be transported in association with proteins. Lipoproteins are complex particles with a central core containing cholesterol esters and triglycerides surrounded by free cholesterol, phospholipids, and apolipoproteins, which facilitate lipoprotein formation and function. Apolipoproteins have four major functions including 1 serving a structural role, 2 acting as ligands for lipoprotein receptors, 3 guiding the formation of lipoproteins, and 4 serving as activators or inhibitors of enzymes involved in the metabolism of lipoproteins.
A lipoprotein is a biochemical assembly whose primary purpose is to transport hydrophobic lipid a. They have a single-layer phospholipid and cholesterol outer shell, with the hydrophilic portions oriented outward toward the surrounding water and lipophilic portions of each molecule oriented inwards toward the lipids molecules within the particles. Apolipoproteins are embedded in the membrane, both stabilising the complex and giving it functional identity determining its fate. Thus the complex serves to emulsify the fats. Many enzymes , transporters , structural proteins, antigens , adhesins , and toxins are lipoproteins. Some transmembrane proteolipids , especially those found in bacteria , are referred to as lipoproteins.

Structural Basis and Functional Mechanism of Lipoprotein in Cholesterol Transport
What is LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein)?
All about diet, cholesterol and lipoproteins
This chapter covered how do HDL, LDL and CETP induce the metabolisms during cholesterol transport, and summarized recent process in the spatial information of the three lipoproteins, especially the elevations of plasma HDL and LDL, and shine a light on the assembly processes of lipoprotein particles and the substrates dynamics exchanges, for an in-depth understanding on the correlation between various lipoprotein classes and cardiovascular risk. Cholesterol - Good, Bad and the Heart. Cardiovascular disease CVD , a leading cause of mortality in many developed and developing countries [ 1 ], roots in the evolvement of atherosclerosis which is associated with profound disturbances of cholesterol metabolism. To some degree, these metabolism disturbances attribute to the net movement of cholesterol among blood and peripheral tissues. For instance, cellular cholesterol uptake is increased in atherosclerosis, while cholesterol efflux is downregulated [ 2 ]. Lipoproteins consists of apolipoproteins, phospholipid and cholesterol play an important role in the transport of cholesterol [ 3 ].
