Also supportive of this diagnosis was the lipoprotein electrophoresis result on the unfractionated ascites fluid where staining at the application point was observed (Fig.
An important characteristic feature of lipoprotein X is its mobility toward the cathode on agar-gel electrophoresis, which was also noted on this patient's lipoprotein electrophoresis. Another way of confirming that lipoprotein X is probably contributing to high total cholesterol concentration is the measurement of serum apolipoprotein B.
