Beta -Carotene transport in human lipoproteins. Comparisons with alpha -tocopherol


, : Beta -Carotene transport in human lipoproteins. Comparisons with alpha -tocopherol. Lipids 29(10): 665-669

The temporal relations of the transport of beta -carotene in lipoproteins were investigated. beta -Carotene 60 mg was given with breakfast to 9 fasting subjects, then blood samples were collected at intervals of up to 75 h, lipoproteins were isolated, and beta -carotene was quantitated. beta -Carotene concentrations in chylomicrons and VLDL peaked at 6 and 9 h, respectively.
