We examined the correlations between serum dolichol levels and laboratory test parameters in patients affected by disease, as well as the distribution of dolichol in sera from patients with hyperbetalipoproteinemia and hyperalphalipoproteinemia. Serum dolichol was evaluated by a reverse-phase HPLC method. After centrifugation, the serum dolichol found in healthy controls was mainly associated with medium-sized particles of the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) fraction. For patients with… CONTINUE READING
