Lipid alteration in Testes and Male Accessory Glands of Leucopholis lepidophora
Suvarna B. More
Abstract: The neutral lipids (NL) and phospholipids (PL) with their constituents were studied in the testes and male accessory glands of Leucopholis lepidophora by employing thin layer chromatography (TLC) and bioassay technique. The quantity of neutral lipids and phospholipids in testes and male accessory glands were 39.51, 36.39, and 12.25, 5.39 mg/gm. wet weight of tissues respectively. Neutral lipids consisted of triacylglycerol (TG) as the major component, monoacylglycerol (MG) and diacylglycerol (DG) inmoderate in concentration, whereas, cholesterol (CHO), cholesterol ester (CE) and free fatty acids (FFA) low in concentration. Phosphatidyl-choline (PC) and phosphatidyl-ethanolamine (PE) were major phospholipid constituents. Phosphatidyl-inositol (PI), lysophosphatidyl- choline (LPC), sphingomyelin (SPG) phosphatidyl-serine (PS), and phosphatidic acid (PA) low in amount. The physiological significance with their constituents was discussed in relation with testes and male accessory glands of Leucopholis lepidophora.
