CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Definition:The amount of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol in a specified volume of blood plasma where the value was derived by a mathematical process or computation rather than being measured directly. VLDL are a class of lipoproteins (typical density in plasma between 0.95 and 1.006 g/ml) that transport exogenous triglycerides and cholesterol from the small intestine to other tissues. VLDL constitute a class of large (e.g. approximately 30-80 nm in diameter) lipoprotein particles.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: calculated plasma VLDL cholesterol level
 narrow_synonym: very low density lipoprotein cholesterol change measurement
