Abstract

In the present study on characterization and identification of lipids by thin layer chromatography in different tissues of Heteropneustes fossilis showed a considerable variation. The number of lipid spots was highest in brain compared to other tissues. The Rf values of spots indicate the regions of similarity between tissues. Comparison of Rf values with those of standards indicated that the presence of phospholipids, choline lipids, gyolopids, ninhydrine, amino group containing lipids were present. Intestine showed more amount of glycolipids and low amount of ninhydrine containing lipids, While liver possessed Iodine containing lipids.in addition these, whereas brain showed glycolipids, ninhydrine containing lipids, Iodine containing lipids and choline lipids too. The present study revealed that the Brain contain highest amount of different classes of lipids. The Liver tissue has shown less number of lipids. Glycolipids and general class of lipids are present in all tissues with minor variations, choline lipids present in brain but not in remaining tissues, while Phospho lipids are present in intestine and brain only, whereas amino group containing lipids were more in all tissues when compared with other class of lipids.

Keywords: Liver, intestine, brain, lipids, Heteropneustes fossilis
