Is it acceptable to run LV conductors in the same conduit with the regular voltage conductors.
For instance, undercabinet lighting with the xfmrs in the basement, run to a kitchen above in EMT with the 120v conductors.

I don't think anything is wrong with it, provided the insulation is rated for the highest voltage on all the conductors.

Any opinions?

See Section 300-3(c) Conductors of Different Systems.

Yes yes,
but i think the original Q was to address Low-V , as in after a 120/12V X-former. Inasmuch as there is no definition of LV.

Sounds like he is putting the ballast for a light fixture in the basement. Check the xfmrs secondary output voltage. It may be higher than you think. Of course, if the xfmr is truly a step down version, then as pointed out by Joe Tedesco, all the conductors in the same raceway, enclosure, or cable must be insulated for the highest voltage.
