Demonstration by Acrylic Gel Electrophoresis of the Specificity of Luxol Blue in the Reaction with Phospholipid (Demonstration Par L'Electrophores En Gel D'Acryle De La Specificite Du Bleu Luxol En Tant Que Reactif Des Phospholipides)
We have confirmed the preferential fixation of Luxol blue to lipoproteins rich in phospholipids, such as alpha-lipoproteins and thromboplastin, and the complete absence of staining with other native or lipid- free proteins. The mode of fixation does not occur at the level of the active groups responsible for electrophoretic mobility of lipoproteins, as shown by the simultaneous electrophoresis of serum prestained with Sudan blue, Nile blue, and Luxol fast blue.
