The relative electrophoretic mobility of apo(a) isoforms depends on the gel system: proposal of a nomenclature for apo(a) phenotypes.


Genetic apo(a) isoforms were originally defined according to their relative mobility in SDS-PAGE compared to apoB-100 and were designated as F, B or S1-S4 isotypes. This widely accepted nomenclature does not accommodate the broad spectrum of apo(a) isoforms (> 30) detected by high resolution SDS-agarose gel electrophoresis. Moreover we here show that the… (More)
