Colorimetric Detection of Human Cæruloplasmin Oxidase Activity after Electrophoresis in Agar Plates or after Immuno-electrophoresis


THE use of colour reactions combined with electro-phoretic analytical methods in agar plates has allowed double (electrophoretic mobility and chemical nature) or triple (electrophoretic mobility, immunochemical specificity and chemical nature) characterization of proteins, lipids, glycoproteins and phospholipids in a variety of biological fluids1.
