A simple method for the isolation and purification of total lipides from animal tissues.
TLDR
A simplified version of the method for the preparation and purification of brain lipides has the advantage of being simpler, of being applicable to any scale desired, of substantially decreasing the losses of lipides incidental to the washing process, and of yielding a washed extract which can be taken to dryness without foaming and without splitting of the proteolipides.

Preparation of lipide extracts from brain tissue.
TLDR
A simple method is described for the preparation of extracts of total pure lipides from brain tissue by homogenizing the tissue with a chloroform-methanol mixture and washing free of non-lipide contaminants. Expand

A STUDY OF THE CHEMICAL NATURE OF COMPONENTS OF BOVINE WHITE MATTER EFFECTIVE IN PRODUCING ALLERGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS IN THE RABBIT
TLDR
Fractions of bovine white matter, prepared by the methods of Folch and Lees, were studied for chemical composition and for their ability to produce experimental allergic encephalomyelitis in rabbits to provide a satisfactory interpretation of the findings of Goldstein et al. Expand
A SIMPLE PROCEDURE FOR THE PREPARATION OF BRAIN SULPHATIDES *
TLDR
ThannHAUSER, FELL~C and SCHMIDT (1955), using THANNHAUSER and BONCODDO'S method of preparation (1953), have shown that the esterification of the sulphuric acid occurs. Expand

Changes with Diet in the Composition of Phosphatidyl Choline of Sheep Bile
645 these changes are shown in Tables I and II. The percentage of oleic acid in the TG fraction increased at peak lactation (14) days) and was at a maximum during involution (Table I). The percentageExpand
