An electroimmunoassay of apolipoprotein E (Apo E) in total human plasma and in the supernatant following precipitation with sodium phosphotungstate in the presence of MgCl2 of the apolipoprotein B (Apo B)-containing lipoproteins is described. The assay is specific and sensitive enough to record also low levels of Apo E found in isolated lipoprotein fractions. In 30 normal male subjects, the method gave a total plasma Apo E concentration of 6.67 +/- 1.92 mg/dl and a HDL Apo E concentration of 2… CONTINUE READING
