Abstract

Extraction of light and dark grown cells of Neurospora crassa with chloroform-methanol gave a free lipid extract in which the relative amounts and compositions of sterols, fatty acid and carotenoid fractions were determined. Further extraction of the cells with methanolic potassium hydroxide solution liberated a bound lipid fraction from the cells. The levels of the bound lipid fraction were much lower than those of the free lipids but analysis showed that the composition was similar to that of the free lipids.
