Method "The LIPID MAPS Consortium has developed innovative lipidomics techniques based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectroscopy to probe biological systems (3) and has undertaken the task of analyzing the NIDDK [The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases]/NIST [National Institute of Standards] SRM [standard reference material] by systematically identifying and quantifying the lipid molecular species of the mammalian lipidome (5, 6)."
Comments "The most number of lipid molecular species analyzed was for the sphingolipid category but the sterols, including cholesterol and its esters, were the most abundant of the lipids on a molar basis (nmol/ml) followed by triglycerides, glycerophospholipids, free fatty acyls, sphingolipids, diacylglycerols, and prenols, though on a weight basis (mg/dl) the glycerophospholipids were the most abundant, as shown in Table 1. Complete data sets are also available on the LIPID MAPS/Nature Lipidomics Gateway," See note beneath table
