Human lung carcinoma tissues with histological types of adenocarcinoma, squamous cell and small cell carcinoma were investigated for phospholipids. There were marked differences in the phospholipids between these lung carcinoma and normal lung tissue. A marked decrease in saturated phosphatidylcholine (PC), predominantly the dipalmitoyl species, was noted in the carcinoma, although they still contained 17–20% of the saturated classes. The lung carcinoma contained less phosphatidylglycerol (PG… CONTINUE READING
