Correlation of apolipoprotein(a) isoproteins with Lp(a) density and distribution in fasting plasma.


Lp(a) is an LDL-like lipoprotein which contains an additional apolipoprotein called apo(a). Apo(a) exhibits a significant size polymorphism and its size is inversely correlated with plasma Lp(a) levels. We investigated the distribution of different apo(a) isoproteins in lipoprotein density fractions. Fasting plasma samples were subjected to non-equilibrium… (More)
