Component of the viral lipidome that are storage lipids

Value 0.3 mol%
Organism Influenza
Reference Gerl et al., Quantitative analysis of the lipidomes of the influenza virus envelope and MDCK cell apical membrane. J Cell Biol. 2012 Jan 23 196(2):213-21 p.215 left column bottom paragraphPubMed ID22249292
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 "The lipidome of the viral particle was significantly different from the AP (apical membrane). Storage lipids are reduced to 0.3 mol% and hence a negligible component of the viral lipidome."
