Each UC method has Serum Analysis by Ultracentrifugation 29 differences in UC time, rotor speed, volume of sample required, and temperature at which the lipoprotein separation occurs, all of which may influence the result (7). Our laboratory (8) and others (7,9) have done numerous investigations establishing the optimal conditions for lipoprotein separation from plasma with minimal contamination or overlap between lipoprotein fractions. 21 g/mL. Furthermore, the makeup of these four fractions is elucidated; all lipid constituents and the total protein of each group are quantitated.

They are synthesized by the intestine and are core-rich in TGs derived from dietary fat. VLDLs are the next largest lipoproteins (diameter 3–80 nm) and are also rich in TG. They are synthesized mainly by the liver, but may also be synthesized to a lesser degree by the intestine. IDLs, whose lipid core is comprised mainly of CE with some TGs, are the resultant product of VLDL metabolism. LDLs, in turn, are the product of IDL metabolism in which almost all of the remaining TGs have been hydrolyzed to produce a lipoprotein with a core comprised almost entirely of CE.
