Haptoglobin (Hp) is a hemoglobin (Hb)-binding acute-phase protein. Besides its relevance in inflammation, Hp is involved in the regulation of lipid metabolism. In cattle, in addition to the lipoprotein-deficient fraction, Hp is distributed in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and very high-density lipoprotein (VHDL) fractions. The purpose of this study was to determine Hp concentrations in the lipoprotein fractions using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based on the affinity with Hb… CONTINUE READING
