High density lipoprotein (HDL) polymorphisms in rabbit. III. Quantitative determination of HDL and the inherited Hl 1 and R 67 antigens

Journal of Immunogenetics

Immunological quantification of HDL and the inherited antigens Hl 1 and R 67 was performed on serum samples from two rabbit populations (Dutch and Albino) comprising a total of 106 animals. The female animals were found to have a higher concentration of both antigens and of HDL than the male animals. The amounts of antigens and of HDL were not obviously normally distributed, but appeared to be more bimodally distributed. The relationship between the amount of antigens and amount of HDL were tested for each animal. A significant positive correlation was found between the amount of R 67 antigen and HDL both for male and female animals in the Albino rabbit population, and for male animals in the Dutch rabbit population. A significant correlation was also found between amounts of Hl 1 and R 67 antigens in the Dutch rabbit population.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.
