Abstract Plasma total cholesterol and plasma β-lipoprotein have been measured in 669 individuals. β-Lipoprotein was measured by an immunological technique. The coefficient of variation between the two assays was + 0.59. The plasma content of both increased with age, though β-lipoprotein showed a marked decrease after the age of 75 yr. Evidence is presented which indicates that the assay of β-lipoprotein cannot be entirely ignored in favour of assaying only the total cholesterol.

Lipid-protein complexes, or lipoproteins, have been studied only recently and their relative importance in metabolism has been compared with glucose and acetate in the study of milk fa t synthesis with goats and with lactating dairy cows. Expand

Identification of target proteins of N‐acetylglucosaminyl‐transferase V and fucosyltransferase 8 in human gastric tissues by glycomic approach
The proteomic analysis of gastric cancer tissues was conducted using two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis and lectin blot, followed by electrospray ionization‐mass spectrometry, which permitted identification of glyco‐ or putative glycosylated proteins which may be associated with tumorigenesis.

The conclusion is drawn that the hypercholesterolemia found in advanced age and in pregnancy is caused by an elevated level of β-lipoproteins having a normal chemical composition. Expand

Lipoprotein patterns of serum obtained by zone electrophoresis.
The results obtained in the present study indicate that lipoprotein patterns can be obtained on whole serum and can be correlated in terms of relative electrophoretic mobility with the other proteins of serum. Expand
