Monoglycerides and fatty acids associate with bile salts to form water-soluble microdroplets called micelles. Micelles carry their contents to the microvillar membranes of the brush-border epithelial cells where the monoglycerides and fatty acids enter the cells by passive diffusion through the plasma membranes. Within the cells, triglycerides are resynthesized from the monoglycerides and fatty acids. The triglycerides aggregate and are coated with lipoproteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to form chylomicrons, which leave the cell by exocytosis and enter the lymphatic system.
