Thin layer chromatography of [14C]palmitate labeled phospholipids of mosquitoAedes aegypti cells reveals that phosphatidylethanolamine is the major phospholipid, and ceramide phosphorylcholine the major sphingolipid. Glycolipids of these cells contain mannose in addition to glucose. The distribution of phospholipids in subcellular membrane fractions shows an enrichment in sphingomyelin and phosphatidyl serine in plasma membranes and other smooth membrane fractions. Cardiolipin is located predominantly in fractions, rich in mitochondrial membranes.
