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 "As shown in Table 1 and supplementary Table IA, human plasma of healthy individuals after overnight fasting contains an average of 214 nmol/ml of free fatty acids. Oleic acid (18:1) is the major constituent followed by palmitic acid (16:0) and stearic acid (18:0) (supplementary Table IA)." See notes above & beneath table
