Proteins of human vaginal fluid

Fertility and Sterility

Abstract

Proteins of vaginal fluid from normal and hysterectomized women were identified and compared with those of cervical mucus. Albumin, alpha1-antitrypsin, alpha2-haptoglobin, alpha2-macroglobulin, beta-lipoprotein, orosomucoid, ceruloplasmin, gamma chains, gamma G. K. (Bence Jones), and immunoglobulins G, A, and M were present in both vaginal fluid and cervical mucus. Fibrin and C-reactive protein were not found in the vaginal fluid but were identified in cervical mucus. alpha2-Haptoglobin, alpha2-macroglobulin, beta-lipoprotein, orosomucoid, and immunoglobulin M were absent in the vaginal fluid of hysterectomized women, indicating that their presence in the vaginal secretion of normal women may be due to contamination from cervical mucus.

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.
