  Lipid Profile
The lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease.
The tests that make up a lipid profile are tests that have been shown to be good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels (hardening of the arteries).
The results of the lipid profile are considered along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up.

 Screening: Lipid Disorders in Adults
Rationale: The USPSTF found good evidence that lipid measurement can identify younger people at increased risk for coronary heart disease, that risk is highest in those with other risk factors, and that the absolute benefits of lipid-lowering treatment depend on a person's underlying risk of coronary heart disease.
The USPSTF makes no recommendation for or against routine screening for lipid disorders in younger adults (men aged 20 to 35 or women aged 20 to 45) in the absence of known risk factors for coronary heart disease.
Rationale: The USPSTF found good evidence that lipid measurement in low-risk young adults can detect some individuals at increased long-term risk of heart disease, but the absolute reduction in risk as a result of treating dyslipidemia in most people is small before middle age.

  Lipid definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms easily defined on MedTerms
Lipid: Another word for "fat." (Please see the various meanings of Fat.) A lipid is more formally defined as a substance such as a fat, oil or wax that dissolves in alcohol but not in water.
Together with carbohydrates and proteins, lipids are the main constituents of plant and animal cells.
Compound lipids (lipids complexed with another type of chemical compound) comprise the lipoproteins, glycolipids and phospholipids.

  Lipid - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
The term lipid comprises a diverse range of molecules and to some extent is a catchall for relatively water-insoluble or nonpolar compounds of biological origin, including waxes, fatty acids, fatty-acid derived phospholipids, sphingolipids, glycolipids and terpenoids, such as retinoids and steroids.
Below the critical micelle concentration the lipids form a single layer on the liquid surface and are dispersed in solution.
Lipid bilayers form the foundation of all biological membranes and of liposomes.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Lipid
Lipids are a class of hydrocarbon-containing organic compounds essential for the structure and function of living cells.
Lipids are characterized by being water-insoluble and soluble in nonpolar organic solvents.
The term lipid really is a catch-all phrase for a wide variety of hydrocarbon-based molecules of biological origin that are predominantly nonpolar or hydrophobic ("water-fearing"), meaning that they do not interact well with polar solvents like water, and are instead soluble in less polar organic solvents.

 Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Lipid raft   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A lipid raft is a cholesterol-rich microdomain in cell membranes.
Therefore, lipid rafts are thought to act as a platform for protein segregation and signaling in cells.
However, the functional role of lipid rafts still remains very uncertain because it has not been determined whether they have a positive effect or negative effect on signal transduction in cells.

 biology - Lipid bilayer
The lipid bilayer is the foundation of all biological membranes, and is a prerequisite of cell-based life.
The bilayer is composed of two opposing layers of lipid molecules arranged so that their hydrocarbon tails face one another to form the oily bilayer core, while their electrically charged or polar heads face the watery or "aqueous" solutions on either side of the membrane.
Because of the oily core, a pure lipid bilayer is permeable to small hydrophobic solutes but has only a very low permeability barrier to inorganic ions and other hydrophilic molecules.
