Definition:The diameter, that is the distance between two specified opposite points on the periphery of blood-derived low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles. LDL constitute a class of relatively large, heterogeneous lipoprotein particles, complex molecules that consist of a protein membrane surrounding a core of lipids. The LDL class of lipoproteins has a density between 1.019 and 1.063 g/ml. In some animal species, such as canine and rodents, this may overlap with the HDL1 class and be designated LDL/HDL1.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: low density lipoprotein particle size measurement
