abstract

  • Low-angle diffraction studies on lipid droplets from human atherosclerotic lesions showed 3 characteristic reflections at 96 A, 72 A and 36 A. These reflections could best be accounted for by the consideration of a lamellar model containing globular esterified cholesterol micelles (36 A) surrounded by globular micelles (45--46 A) composed of a phospholipid-cholesterol complex.
