Sample text

In this sense, the process is dependent on HDL. The presence of HDL in tissue cultures of cells loaded with cholesteryl ester results in the transfer of cholesterol out of the cell to the HDL. Cholesterol excess to cellular requirements for membranes or as a synthetic substrate is esterified and packaged as droplets of the intensely hydrophobic cholesteryl ester. To cross the cell membrane, cholesterol leaving cells must be unesterified (unless apo E synthesized within the cell transports it out).

Only the liver could produce sufficient cholesterol for this, via its ABCA1 receptors. There is a paradox here, if we view HDL simply as a lipoprotein transporting cholesterol from peripheral tissues back to the liver, because its very existence depends on cholesterol efflux from the liver. We know this because, in Tangier disease (analphalipoproteinaemia), which is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations of the ABCA1 gene, HDL and apo AI and II are virtually absent from the circulation and huge quantities of apo AI and II are renally catabolized.

Once secreted they undergo exactly the same sequence of changes as chylomicrons; that is, the acquisition of apolipoproteins and the progressive removal of triglycerides from their core by lipoprotein lipase. There are, however, some additional metabolic transformations involved in their metabolism in humans. In humans, the liver, unlike the gut, does not esterify cholesterol before its secretion. This is different from other species such as the rat. In humans, most of the cholesterol released from the liver each day into the circulation is secreted in VLDL as free cholesterol and undergoes esterification in the circulation.
