The proteins that bind to lipids and form lipoproteins are referred to as apolipoproteins. The major function of apolipoproteins is to transport lipids throughout the body by lymphatic and circulatory systems. These apolipoproteins are synthesised in Intestine. There are 6 major classes of apolippoproteins and many subclasses of these are present. The six classes are 1) Apolipoprotein A (apo A) 2) Apolipoprotein B (apo B) 3) Apolipoprotein C (apo c) 4) Apolipoprotein D (apo D) 5) Apolipoprotein E (apo E) 6) Apolipoprotein H (apo H)
These apolipoproteins function as enzyme coenzymes, ligands for lipoprotein receptors in tissues.
