18. Evaluation by ELISA of fatty liver-associated serum proteins in cows


In fatty liver cows, serum concentrations of apolipoprotein A-I and apolipoprotein B-100 are decreased,whereas that of haptogIobin is increased.
The ELISA methods of these proteins were developed for the specific and prompt diagnosis of fatty liver in cows.
