The present work compares six biochemical methods for extraction of lipids from human serum. Although some organic solvents were good lipid extractors, they precipitated most of the total proteins and albumin. On the other hand, methodologies using Triton X-114 and silica were efficient for extraction of lipids, while sparing the protein fraction. D 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Bioaccessibility of Copper in Turkish Hazelnuts (Corylus avellana L.) by Chemical Fractionation and In Vitro Methods
The bioaccessibility of copper was found to be in the range from 16 to 31 % for hazelnut samples, and considering this value, 100 g of hazelnuts supplies 33–44 % of daily copper intake.
Spectrophotometric Determination of Cholesterol in Human Serum Samples
A sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of cholesterol in serum samples was described. 4-Hydroxybenzaldehyde was used for spectrophotometric determination of cholesterol. The
A serum-free and insulin-supplemented cell culture medium ensures fatty acid synthesis gene activation in cancer cells
It is reported that a defined serum free cell culture medium condition containing insulin, transferrin and selenium (ITS) supports controlled study of DNFA regulation in melanoma cell lines and shows clear utility for melanoma cancer cell culture and lipid-related areas of investigation.


A rapid method of total lipid extraction and purification.
The lipid decomposition studies in frozen fish have led to the development of a simple and rapid method for the extraction and purification of lipids from biological materials that has been applied to fish muscle and may easily be adapted to use with other tissues.
A rapid procedure for elimination of non-polar lipids hampering the usual polar lipid extraction and TLC separation.
A new and rapid method is proposed for extraction of non-polar lipids from tissues where they are present as abundant components which can interfere with the usual procedures of lipid extraction and
The purification of mouse monoclonal antibodies from ascitic fluid.
A quantitative analysis of serum sulfatide by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry with delayed ion extraction.
Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry with delayed ion extraction (DE MALDI-TOF MS) was applied for the first time for the quantitation of sulfatide content in serum at the picomole level and was found to be sensitive, convenient, and reliable.
Cholesterol microcrystals associated with concanavalin A-binding glycoproteins contribute artifactually to nucleating activity assays.
A modified procedure to prepare potential nucleating proteins from gallbladder bile should eliminate erroneous results that may arise due to lipid contamination and determined the contribution of lipid contamination to cholesterol nucleation.
Phase Separation of Integral Membrane Proteins in Triton X-114 Solution
The partition of proteins during phase separation in solutions of Triton X-114 is investigated and integral membrane proteins with an amphiphilic nature are recovered in the detergent phase.
