    • ‘Also shown are the key enzymes, receptors, transfer proteins, and lipoproteins participating in cholesterol synthesis, transport, and degradation.’
    • ‘The in vitro and in vivo experiments showed that free cholesterol and phospholipids were transferred from lipid emulsion to plasma lipoproteins independently from each other.’
