Abstract : Chloroform: methanol extracts of whole and parotid saliva were subjected to paper chromatography to further characterize their lipid components. The presence of cholesterol esters, triglycerides, fatty acids, cholesterol, diglycerides, monoglycerides, and various phospholipids was demonstrated in the sample materials. Whole and parotid saliva had similar nonphosphatides, but differed in their phospholipid composition. (Author)
