Lipids = cholesterol and triglyceride - are insoluble in plasma and are transported in lipoproteins functions = energy utilization, steroid hormone production, bile acid production, lipid deposition lipoprotein consists of esterified and unesterified cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids and apolipoproteins. Therefore, like the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol biosynthesis depends on the export of acetyl-coa from the mitochondria also as with fatty acids, multiple steps in the cholesterol synthesis require nadph. Many intermediates in the synthesis of cholesterol and of its derivatives are very hydrophobic and very poorly soluble in water they therefore. Cholesterol synthesis the liver is the primary organ that synthesizes cholesterol about 20–25% of total daily cholesterol production occurs here cholesterol is also synthesized to smaller extents in the adrenal glands, intestines, reproductive organs etc.
