Simple surgery gave whole meibomian glands of steer yielding approximately 47 mg of lipid per pair of lids. This lipid gave a thin-layer chromatography pattern similar to that of steer or human excreta. Column chromatography of pooled steer gland lipids and pooled human lipid (excreta) gave 0.06% and 7.54% hydrocarbons, respectively, containing no squalene.(More)
Triglycerides and phospholipids dominate in Baltic herring flesh lipids throughout the plankton growth season though at the same time plankton species and their lipids vary considerably. Wax esters and fatty alcohols do not exist in significant amounts in Baltic herring flesh or plankton. Saturated fatty acids exist in equal proportions in herring and(More)
The roe lipid fatty acids of Baltic herring, roach, perch, burbot and rainbow trout were quantitatively studied by capillary-GLC. The composition of roe fatty acids remain fairly stable during the fish maturation. The fatty acid profiles are very similar in various fish roes though differences exist in the relative amounts of individual components. On(More)
The response an linearity were studied for about twenty different types of lipids in a quantitative thin-layer chromatographic system equipped with flame ionization detection (TLC-FID). For most compounds the response showed good linearity with loads from 0.4 to 15 micrograms. The relative response of cholesterol, sterol ester and wax ester in ratio to(More)
