Little is known about racial differences in lipoprotein[a] (Lp[a]) concentrations and apolipoprotein[a] (apo[a]) phenotypes. Lp[a] protein concentrations were determined by a double monoclonal antibody enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method in 4165 Caucasian and African American men and women from four US communities. Apo[a] phenotypes were determined by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting on a random subset of these participants (n = 690). The distribution of Lp[a] protein… CONTINUE READING
