PURPOSE The major component of human lens membranes was thought to be sphingomyelin until 1991, when a study by phosphorus-31 (31P) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy revealed the presence of an unknown phospholipid that constituted approximately half the human lens phospholipids. The objective of this work was to isolate this phospholipid and to elucidate its identity. METHODS The separation of sphingomyelin from the unknown was accomplished using high-performance liquid… CONTINUE READING
