Rule of thumb for lipid concentration

Value ~0.11 g/g DW
Organism Mouse Mus musculus

Method Calculated by summing lipid concentrations (table 8 link link) one gets 0.139mmol lipid/g DW. Multiplying by average lipid mass of 799.6Da (mean of 8 lipids in table 8) one gets 0.11g/gDw
Comments DW=Dry Weight. Note-Rabinowitz et al., 1992 PMID 1518391 p.312 left column 2nd paragraph give lipid conc. in human liver of 65mg/gWW. Assuming that dry weight is ~0.3 of Wet Weight (as in rat liver, BNID 105938), one arrives at 0.22g lipid/gDW.
