Abstract : Plasma was obtained from 14 normal people after an overnight fast and the standard lipoprotein classes were separated in the ultracentrifuge. Protein, triglycerides, cholesterol, phospholipids, and alpha-tocopherol were determined on each lipoprotein and plasma sample. Alpha-tocopherol was found in all lipoprotein classes. Alpha-tocopherol level correlated best with total lipids (r=0.855), phospholipids (r=0.801), and cholesterol (r=0.795). Poor correlations were obtained with triglycerides (r=0.317) and proetin (r=0.368). Two subjects who were taking supplementary alpha-tocopherol were also studied and their alpha-tocopherol values were higher but distribution among lipoprotein classes was similar. (Author)
