Three high-denisity lipoprotein classes and one protein were separated from rat-liver plasma in membranes that had been treated with mild sonic oscillation. The lipoproteinis were separated and identified by techniques in which ultracentrifugation was used. Enzyme markers and electron-microscopic examination revealed membrane preparations essentially free of contaminating cellular partictulates.
