From: Detection of hereditary bisalbuminemia in bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus, Montagu 1821): comparison between capillary zone and agarose gel electrophoresis

  1. Values showed represent mean, standard deviation (median and min-max values) of total protein (TP), albumin (percentage and absolute values) obtained using capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) and agarose gel electrophoresis (AGE)
  2. *P < 0.05 vs albumin percentage and absolute value measured with AGE, **P < 0.001 vs albumin percentage and absolute value measured with AGE
