Apolipoproteins are the protein components of lipoproteins, the lipid–protein complexes responsible for transporting lipids in the blood. They may have additional specialized functions that are encoded by their genes. This review summarizes the current knowledge on gene and protein structure and the function of this rather complex group of proteins.
