LDL Cholesterol test

Low density lipoprotein

About the parameter


LDL Cholesterol Single Test Thumbnail

Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) are synthesized in the liver by the action of various lipolytic enzymes on triglyceride-rich very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). Specific LDL receptors exist to facilitate the elimination of LDL from plasma by liver parenchymal cells.

It has been shown that most of the cholesterol stored in atherosclerotic plaques originates from LDL. It is for this reason that the LDL cholesterol concentration is considered to be the most important clinical predictor of all single parameters relating to coronary atherosclerosis.
