A survey of polar and non-polar lipids of mouse organs
1. 1. Total lipid was extracted from mouse (Mus musculus) heart, kidney, lung, liver, intestine, brain, stomach, dermis and epidermis and analyzed by quantitative thin-layer chromatography. 2. 2. All of the tissues contained phospholipids, triglycerides, sterols and free fatty acids. All tissues except brain contained small amounts of steryl esters, and all except stomach contained some glycosylceramides. 3. 3. Wax diesters were found in both the dermis and epidermis. 4. 4. Only epidermis contained a high proportion of ceramides. 5. 5. Acylglucosylceramides were uniquely present in epidermis. © 1985.
