Medical Definition of Lipophorin

1. A family of high density lipoproteins (6-700 kD) from insect haemolymph, that transport diacyl glycerols. The molecule comprises heavy (250 kD) and light (85 kD) subunits, the remainder of the molecular weight being accounted for by the high lipid content (40-50%, depending on insect species). Lipophorin forms large aggregates during the haemolymph clotting process. This entry appears with permission from the Dictionary of Cell and Molecular Biology (11 Mar 2008)
