Apo(a), the specific lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) apolipoprotein, is characterized by different isoforms (from 6 to 11 on SDS-PAGE) encoded by a system of autosomal codominant alleles. Electrophoresis on agarose gel displays a better resolving power than SDS-PAGE (a larger number of apo(a) isoforms is detected). The aim of this work was to set up a simple… CONTINUE READING
