Assay of Activators for Serum Lipoprotein Lipase
The measurement of the serum level of most of the apo-lipoproteins is a tedious operation, unsuited to routine use. But two of these proteins, namely those designated as CI and CII, are known to stimulate the activity of lipoprotein lipase, and are thus open to estimation via a sensitive enzymic reaction. The purpose of this report is to describe some results which have been obtained with an assay based on the observation by Whayne and Felts (19 70) that guinea pig post-heparin plasma does not hydrolyse Intralipid unless it is activated by the addition of human or rat serum.
