The principal form of the serum low density lipoprotein (LDL) in man, baboon, rhesus monkey and pig was isolated by preparative ultracentrifugation in the density interval 1.024-1.045 g/ml. The physicochemical characteristics of pig LDL most closely resembled those of man; thus, electrophoretic studies suggested that both baboon and rhesus LDL have a greater surface charge than that of their human counterpart, and electron-microscopic investigations showed baboon LDL (245 A) to be larger and… CONTINUE READING
