transport of dietary lipids from intestine to peripheral tissues
transport of cholesterol from peripheral tissues to liver
transport of cholesterol to peripheral tissues
transport of free fatty acids generated from adipose lipolysis
transport of triacylglycerols from the liver to peripheral tissues
formed from the reaction of transition metal and hydrogen peroxide; ROS that most responsible for damage to biological molecules
Can be used to generate a reactive nitrogen species; Formed when one electron is transferred to O2.
is not a radical, Can be enzymatically produced from superoxide
Superoxide is formed when a single electron is accepted by O2. Where in the electron transport chain is superoxide most likely to be produced?
Transfer of electrons from complex I or complex II to coenzyme Q.
A lipase is an enzyme that cleaves the ester bond between a fatty acid and glycerol. Which of the following lipases is important for catalyzing this reaction on triacylglycerols packaged in chylomicrons?
What is the role of Apolipoprotein C-II in chylomicron and VLDL metabolism?
Apolipoprotein C-II activates lipoprotein lipase, which cleaves fatty acids off the triacylglycerols packaged in the lipoprotein.
Which of the following enzymes catalyzes the reduction of hydrogen peroxide to water?
