Lipids are insoluble in water and have to be incorporated in water-soluble lipid-protein complexes called lipoproteins for transportation in the blood. The proteins in the lipoprotein complexes are called apolipoproteins. Lipoproteins have a hydrophobic core containing apolar lipids (triglycerides and cholesterylesters) and a hydrophilic surface containing apolipo-proteins, unesterified cholesterol and phospholipids. Apolipo-proteins are thus structural proteins in the lipoprotein complexes, but they also have important functions in the lipid metabolism.
