Definition:The diameter, that is the distance between two specified opposite points on the periphery of blood-derived very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles. VLDL constitute a class of large (e.g. approximately 30-80 nm in diameter) lipoprotein particles, complex molecules that consist of a protein membrane surrounding a core of lipids. The VLDL class of lipoproteins has a density between 0.95 and 1.006 g/ml.
