  1. Correlation between observed and modeled change in TG (or CE) mass and change in TG (or CE) per ApoB (or ApoA1) in lipoprotein fractions in experiment 1 (n = 91). The corresponding best correlation out of all measured concentrations and lipid per apolipoprotein are also listed. Δ: baseline – plasma stored for 1 h at 37 °C
