High performance thin layer chromatographic analysis of neutral lipids and phospholipids in the medicinal leech Hirudo medicinalis and in leech conditioned water



High performance thin layer chromatographic analysis of neutral lipids and phospholipids in the medicinal leech Hirudo medicinalis and in leech conditioned water



Journal of Liquid Chromatography and Related Technologies 28(16): 2597-2606



High performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) was used to determine neutral lipids and phospholipids in the medicinal leech Hirudo medicinalis. Whole bodies and anterior, middle, and posterior thirds were analyzed for lipids. The major neutral lipids found in the leech were free sterols and steryl esters, along with lesser amounts of free fatty acids and triacylglycerols. The major phospholipids were phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine.
