Isothermal Calorimetric Studies on Human HDL Apolipoproteins
Isothermal calorimetry measures the enthalpy change involved in a chemical reaction. When adapted to the microscale, it quantitates the amount of millijoules associated at a given temperature with the mixing and reassembly of biochemicals, i.e., in our case an apoprotein solution and a phospholipid dispersion. The extent of reassembly and the complex composition can be derived from density gradient ultracentrifugation experiment performed in parallel with the microcalorimetric measurements (Rosseneu et al., 1974).
