In the rat, very low density lipoproteins isolated from hepatocyte Golgi apparatus, liver perfusates, and whole plasma appear identical in many respects. With specific immunochemical techniques and polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis it can be demonstrated that the very low density lipoproteins from all three sources contain the same major lipoprotein apoproteins.
