Table 3 Surface lipid to Core lipid ratio of LDL and HDL particles from hamsters fed with various diets.

From: The levels of plasma low density lipoprotein are independent of cholesterol ester transfer protein in fish-oil fed F1B hamsters

Surface lipid: Core lipid
Particle Type Fat level Fish Oil Mix
   - Cholesterol + Cholesterol - Cholesterol + Cholesterol
LDL 5% 0.24 0.18 0.59 0.65
  20% 0.52 0.59 0.96 0.98
HDL 5% 0.25 0.45 1.02 1.01
  20% 0.39 0.69 0.75 0.93
  1. Surface lipids are composed of free cholesterol and phospholipids. Core lipids are composed of cholesterol esters and triacylglycerols. The surface lipid to core lipid ratio was calculated by dividing the mean surface lipids with mean core lipids.
