Composition of Lipids in Flight Muscles of Leucopholis lepidophora
Abstract: The neutral lipids (NL) and phospholipids (PL) with their constituents were studied in the flight muscles of male and female adults of Leucopholis lepidophora, by employing thin layer chromatography (TLC) and bioassay technique. The quantity of neutral lipids in male and female flight muscles were measured 39.192 and 40.039 mg/gm wet weight of tissues respectively. The main component of neutral lipids was triacylglycerol. The phospholipid values in male and female were 23.163 and22.999 mg/gm wet weights of tissues respectively. The NL PL ratio in male and female adults was recorded to 21. The neutral lipids found in six forms. Triacylglycerol was the main component, it exhibits 29.60 and 32.08 mg/gm wet weight of tissues in male and female flight muscles respectively. monoacylglycerol, diacylglycerol, cholesterol, were moderate and cholesterol ester and free fatty acids low in quantity. Phospholipids exhibited seven constituents, phosphatidyl-choline and phosphatidyl-ethanolamine in high concentration. I male and female adults it constitutes 376.1, 345.3 and 345.1, 370.5 mg/gm wet weight of tissues respectively. Lysophosphatidyl-choline and sphingomyelin moderate in concentration, and phosphatidyl-inositol, phosphatidyl-serine and phosphatidic acid low in quantity.
