Chylomicrons function is
|C||emulsification of fat|
I. Chylomicrons are lipoprotein particles that consist of triglycerides (85-92%), phospholipids (6-12%), cholesterol (1-3%) and proteins (1-2%).
II. They transport dietary lipids from the intestines to other locations in the body. Chylomicrons transport exogenous lipids to liver, adipose, cardiac, and skeletal muscle tissue, where their triglyceride components are unloaded by the activity of lipoprotein lipase.
III. As a consequence, chylomicron remnants are left over and are taken up by the liver.Chylomicrons are a type of structure that includes lipoprotein produced in absorptive cells of small intestines, specifically, the epithelial cells within the villi of the duodenum.
