By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Data detailed on Proteins have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Changhua, Taiwan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Liquid-phase and solid-phase extractions (SPE) in combination with a simple micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) method were used to investigate human very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) lipids for two healthy donors. At absorbance 200 nm, the effective mobilities and peak areas of the MEKC profiles showed good reproducibility and precisions."
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the National Changhua University of Education, "A major peak and several minor peaks appeared for the total lipids of native VLDL, but both the peak numbers and areas reduced for the in vitro oxidized VLDL. Two chloroform and two methanol fractions were obtained from SPE of VLDL total lipids. Significant differences were observed for the first methanol fraction between native and in vitro oxidized VLDL lipids. The first methanol fraction showed a major peak and several minor peaks for native VLDL, but both the peak numbers and areas reduced for oxidized VLDL."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Oxidation of VLDL caused decomposition of lipids, and thus the reduction of peak numbers and areas."
