The soft corals of the genus Xenia are common for Indo-Pacific reef ecosystems. Lipid class, fatty acid (FA), phospho- and phosphonolipid molecular species compositions were identified for the first time in the soft coral Xenia sp. from Vietnam. Total lipids consisted predominantly of waxes, monoalkyl diacylglycerols, triacylglycerols, sterols, and polar(More)
A method that uses marker fatty acids (FAs) is widely applied in investigations of trophic and symbiotic relationships. In a search for new lipid markers, we determined the total lipid FA composition, as well as the composition of molecular species of mono- and digalactosyl diacylglycerols (MGDGs and DGDGs), which are specific galactolipids of thylakoid(More)
