The assembly of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) occurs in two steps (Olofsson et al. 2000). In the second step, pre-VLDL in the smooth ER lumen binds the major lipids that form bona fide VLDL; triacylglycerols (TAG) (50%), phospholipids (PL) (20%), cholesterol (CHOL) (10%) and cholesteryl esters (CHEST) (5%).
