dc.description.abstractAgrose gel electrophoresis was run on the serum of 36 mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and birds and the distribution of the lipoprotein classes in each animal was determined. The pig, opossum and garter snakes seem to contain large amounts of the lipoprotein class which is of interest in atherosclerosis studies. These animals also had serum cholesterol values similar to humans. Agarose gel electrophoresis proved an excellent method for determining lipoprotein distributions but the electrophoretic mobilities of the lipoproteins appear to be unsuitable for lipoprotein classification.en_US
