Term Detail
GO term:intermediate-density lipoprotein particle
Synonym: IDL complex
Synonym: IDL particle
Synonym: intermediate-density lipoprotein complex
GO id:GO:0034363
Definition:A triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particle that typically contains APOB100, APOE and APOCs and has a density of 1.006-1.019 g/ml and a diameter of between 25-30 nm. IDL particles are found in blood and are formed by the delipidation of very-low-density lipoprotein particles (VLDL). IDL particles are removed from blood by the liver, following binding to the APOE receptor, or are converted to low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
