The effect of phospholipase A from snake venom and deoxycholic acid on lipoprotein-X (LP-X) recovered from the cathode side of a previous agar gel electrophoresis is described. Adding phospholipase A and deoxycholic acid to the removed cathodal fraction is followed by a marked migration to the anode side on a second electrophoresis procedure. This seems to confirm that phospholipase A and bile salts act on LP-X particles modifying their agar gel electrophoretic migration characteristics. © 1977 S. Karger AG, Basel.
