Abstract

Sea urchins accumulate large amounts of lipid in ovary during its reproductive cycle (Giese, 1966 ; Vivek Raja, 1980); Lipids deposited in the developing gonads may be synthesized within the oocytes or transported from the gut. A variety of lipid classes are also found to occur in the ovary, testis, gut, body wall and coelomocytes of the sea urchins (Allen, 1974; Vivek Raja, 1980). The present experiment is designed to separate and identify the different lipid classes present in gut, testis and ovary of the sea urchin Salmacis virgulata employing thin layer chromatographic method
