def: "A macromolecular complex containing separate protein, lipid and RNA molecules. Separate in this context means not covalently bound to each other." [GOC:vesicles, PMID:21423178, PMID:22028337, PMID:23559634]
comment: Examples of protein-lipid-RNA complexes are described in PMID:21423178 and PMID:23559634, both showing evidence that high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and, to a lesser extent, low-density lipoprotein (HDL) transport endogenous microRNAs (miRNAs) and deliver them to recipient cells with functional targeting capabilities. Also see fig. 1 in the review PMID:22028337. Not to be confused with GO:0034364 'high-density lipoprotein particle' or GO:0034362 'low-density lipoprotein particle', which describe complexes of proteins and lipids only, without RNAs.
