HDL Functionality (Non-efflux functions) AND Relationships to Atherosclerosis


Chapter 3: HDL Functionality (Non-efflux functions) AND Relationships to Atherosclerosis

Recent evidence suggests that the functionality of HDL may be more closely related to function than HDL-C. The functionality of HDL particles is intimately related to their structure and physicochemical properties, and notably to their lipidome and proteome. This slide module will discuss HDL proteomics and lipidomics and their implications for functionality. After viewing participants will be able to understand the mechanisms involved in the production, metabolism, and functionality of HDL and how they relate to atherogenesis.
