Check all that apply.
A. Lipoproteins are complexes of lipids and proteins.
B. Lipoproteins can be distinguished by their densities and composition.
C. Lipoprotein densities increase in the following order: chylomicrons, VLDLs, LDLs, HDLs, IDLs.
D. Chylomicrons are the only lipoproteins that exclusively carry dietary lipids.
E. HDL has a high lipid-to-protein ratio. HDL is termed "bad" cholesterol because it can deposit excess cholesterol in the arteries.
F. Lipoprotein densities vary because lipoproteins have different lipid-to-protein ratios.
