We describe a modified method of precipitating low- and very-low-density lipoproteins with polyethylene glycol, for quantitation of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. A 100 g/L concentration of polyethylene glycol 6000 in a buffered (pH 10) solution is used. Under these conditions precipitation of beta-lipoproteins is complete. Values for HDL cholesterol(More)
A reagent is described for the colorimetric enzymic determination of high-density-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. The reagent can be used with HDL fractions isolated by the various methods of precipitation of low- and very-low-density lipoproteins we investigated. The considerable sensitivity obtained by use of Barham-Trinder's reaction allows the(More)
We report the first direct measurement of the (14)O superallowed Fermi β-decay QEC value, the last of the so-called "traditional nine" superallowed Fermi β decays to be measured with Penning trap mass spectrometry. (14)O, along with the other low-Z superallowed β emitter, (10)C, is crucial for setting limits on the existence of possible scalar currents. The(More)
We report the determination of the Q(EC) value of the mirror transition of (11)C by measuring the atomic masses of (11)C and (11)B using Penning trap mass spectrometry. More than an order of magnitude improvement in precision is achieved as compared to the 2012 Atomic Mass Evaluation (Ame2012) [Chin. Phys. C 36, 1603 (2012)]. This leads to a factor of 3(More)
