Useful cardiovascular research and for the study of lipid transport. Also useful in the study of LDL metabolism and its relation to cardiovascular diseases.Lipoprotein, low density, human plasma is a large protein complex that binds cell surface receptors in vertebrates and delivers cholesterol by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Further, it is evaluated for receptor binding to human skin fibroblasts. In addition to this, it is used as a cell markers and disease marker.
