English term or phrase: packaging of cholesterol
Dans la phrase suivante, quel est le sens de "packaging" ? Je ne trouve rien de pertinent jusqu'ici...

Hepatocytes also upregulate synthesis and packaging of cholesterol, releasing even more cholesterol

Merci d'avance !

incorporation/assemblage de cholestérol (dans les particules lipoprotéiques)

Sans grande confiance que la traduction proposée soit la meilleure façon d'exprimer cette notion, ici "packaging" a bien le sens "d'emballage". Il s'agit d'incorporer le cholestérol (insoluble dans l'eau) dans des particules lipoprotéiques permettant son transport via le plasma vers d'autres cellules.

"Cholesterol is packaged in chylomicrons in the intestine and in very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) in the liver. It is transported in the blood in these lipoprotein particles (...) The liver packages some of the esterified cholesterol into the hollow core of lipoproteins, primarily VLDL. VLDL is secreted from the hepatocyte into the blood and transports the cholesterol esters (and triacylglycerols, phospholipids, apoproteins, etc.) to the tissues (...) Because they are hydrophobic and essentially insoluble in the water of the blood, cholesterol and cholesterol esters, like triacylglycerols and phospholipids, must be transported through the bloodstream packaged as lipoproteins." collection of medical b...'%20Basic%20Medical%20Biochemistry%20A%20Clinical%20Approach%20-%20a%20clinical%20approach%20(2004)/Ch34-Cholesterol%20Absorption,%20Synthesis,%20Metabolism,%20and%20Fate.pdf

"Au niveau de l'hépatocyte, le cholestérol libre peut aussi être réestérifié par une ACAT2 afin d'être stocké sous forme de gouttelettes lipidiques ou incorporé dans les particules de VLDL sécrétées dans le compartiment plasmatique"

"Etudier les différents types d’assemblages des triacylglycérols et du cholestérol sous forme de particules lipoprotéiques en vue de leur transport et distribution aux différents tissus périphériques (...)
Les lipoprotéines a très faible densité sont synthétisées dans le foie. Elles proviennent de l’assemblage de triacylglycérols, des différentes formes de cholestérol, de l’ApoB-100 et de l’ApoA-I." 1...
