CHYLOMICRONS

Endocrinology

CHYLOMICRONS

1. Hydrophilic phospholipid outer layer + embedded apolipoproteins (apo B48, CII, E).
2. Contain triglycerides + cholesterol.
3. Enter circulation via intestinal lymph ducts.
4. Bind peripheral muscles and fat.
5. Apo CII (on chylomicron) stimulates LPL (on muscles and fat) => suck out triglycerides (by breaking them down to FFA).
6. Remnant chylomicron binds liver via apo E => suck out cholesterol.
