Let's Compare Hdl and Ldl

Hdl

Vigilin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HDLBP gene.

HDL n : a lipoprotein that transports cholesterol in the blood; composed of a high proportion of protein and relatively little cholesterol; high levels are thought to be associated with decreased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis [syn: {high-density lipoprotein}, {alpha-lipoprotein}]

Ldl

The Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) Receptor (LDL-R) is a mosaic protein of 839 amino acids (after removal of 21-amino acid signal peptide) that mediates the endocytosis of cholesterol-rich LDL.

LDL n : a lipoprotein that transports cholesterol in the blood; composed of moderate amount of protein and a large amount of cholesterol; high levels are thought to be associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis [syn: {low-density lipoprotein}, {beta-lipoprotein}]

LDL \LDL\ ([e^]l`d[=e]*[e^]l/") n. [acronym from Low-Density Lipoprotein.] (Med., Biochem.) {Low-density lipoprotein}, a lipoprotein that transports cholesterol in the blood; high levels are thought to be associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis; sometimes called informally {bad cholesterol}. Syn: low-density lipoprotein. [WordNet 1.5]

LDL ["LDL: A Logic-Based Data-Language", S. Tsur et al, Proc VLDB 1986, Kyoto Japan, Aug 1986, pp.33-41].
