Isolation, purification and quantification of phenolic glycolipid-1 from human leprosy skin tissues.

Abstract

Phenolic glycolipid-I, a marker lipid of Mycobacterium leprae, was isolated from skin biopsies obtained from untreated lepromatous leprosy patients by silicic acid and florisil column chromatography and purified by thin layer chromatography. Tissues with varying bacillary loads were analysed for their phenolic glycolipid content. A good correlation was observed between the bacillary population of the tissues and the phenolic glycolipid content.
