Synonym: β-Lipoprotein, LDL, Low density lipoprotein

MW: 2,300,000 Da

Liquid in 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.4, and 0.01% EDTA
Density: 1.019 to 1.063 g/ml; Composition: 78-80% lipid, 22-20% protein

Storage: 2-6 Degrees C; Do NOT Freeze; Store Away from Light

Shelf Life: minimum 3 months remaining

In a normal fasting individual, low density lipoprotein concentrations range from 2.0 - 3.5 g/L. LDL constitutes 50% of the total lipoprotein mass in plasma and is the major carrier of cholesterol and cholesteryl esters. LDL levels strongly correlate with coronary heart disease.

Purity: single arc by IEP against antisera to whole human serum. Essentially free of other plasma lipoproteins and chylomicrons as determined by electrophoresis using a SPIFE Vis Cholesterol gel kit for lipids and Coomassie Blue for proteins. >=95% of total lipoprotein content by electrophoresis.

Prepared from fresh, non-frozen plasma shown to be non reactive for HBsAg, anti-HCV, anti-HBc, and negative for anti-HIV 1 & 2 by FDA-required tests.
