C III
D IV

Ans. C III

Lipoproteins have been classified on the basis of their densities into five major classes:

l. Chylomicrons,

2.Very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL),

3.Intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL),

4.Low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and

5.High-density lipoproteins (HDL).

Familial Type III: Hyperlipoproteinemia (familial dysbetalipoproteinemia)

Defect

Deficiency in remnant clearance by the liver due to abnormality in apo E. Patients lack isoforms

E3 and E4 and have only E2 which does not react with E receptor
