The levels, isoforms and distribution of apolipoprotein A-IV (apo A-IV) were investigated in 127 term human umbilical cord sera. In addition, apo A-IV levels and isoforms were determined on the 3rd (n = 82) and 6th (n = 68) day following parturition and compared to apo A-I concentrations. Levels of apo A-IV were low in umbilical cord serum (5.7 +/- 1.9 mg/dl) as compared to adult serum (17.6 +/- 4.8 mg/dl). No difference was found between male and female neonates. The serum distribution of apo… CONTINUE READING
