Method "[Researchers] used a shotgun lipidomics approach that combines high mass accuracy and resolution mass spectrometry (MS) and a two-step extraction procedure for optimal recovery of polar lipids with the use of internal standard mixtures for absolute quantification of 18 lipid classes and 419 lipid species..."
Comments "GPLs make up 29.2 ± 0.9 mol% compared with 40.8 ± 2.1 mol% in the AP (Fig. 2 B), and viral GPLs consisted mostly of the inner leaflet lipids PE, PE O-, and PS (Fig. 2 A)."
