Synonym: very-low-density lipoprotein complex
Synonym: VLDL complex
Synonym: VLDL particle
GO id:GO:0034361
Definition:A triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particle that is typically composed of APOB100, APOE and APOCs and has a density of about 1.006 g/ml and a diameter of between 20-80 nm. It is found in blood and transports endogenous products (newly synthesized cholesterol and triglycerides) from the liver.
