Name
chylomicron
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
A large lipoprotein particle (diameter 75-1200 nm) composed of a central core of triglycerides and cholesterol surrounded by a protein-phospholipid coating. The proteins include one molecule of apolipoprotein B-48 and may include a variety of apolipoproteins, including APOAs, APOCs and APOE. Chylomicrons are found in blood or lymph and carry lipids from the intestines into other body tissues. Source: http://biotech.icmb.utexas.edu/search/dict-search.html, GOC:rl, PMID:10580165, GOC:jl
