The broad aim of the work reported on in this
thesis was to study pathologically and chemically induced
disturbances of lipid and protein patterns.
Originally it was proposed to study chemically
disturbed patterns by means of externally introduced
lipids, especially those of dietary significance.
Orientating studies on technique are given in Chapter I. The evaluation of electrophoretio lipid and
protein patterns involves reference to prominent bands.
It was proposed to study protein and lipoprotein patterns
on cellulose acetate, which permits a complete separation
of serum proteins after 1 to 1 1/2 hours electrophoresis.
However, no reproducible and otherwise satisfactory method
could be developed for the staining of lipids. Chapter II
deals with the study of relative mobilities of serum
proteins and the correlation with the work done by Parsons
and Polya (1). Failure of tetracycline to affect lipaemic
serum during experiments of Parsons and Polya (2) it was
thought that tetracycline could be suitable as a chemical agent to bring about modification of the lipid patterns.
Investigations of this hypothesis are described in
Chapter III.
