### The Identification of Polar Lipids in Prokaryotes

Abstract:

Prokaryotes possess an enormous variety of polar lipids, primarily phospholipids and glycolipids, that cannot be easily identified at the chemical level. However, by using thin-layer chromatography, these polar lipids have been shown to constitute important chemotaxonomic parameters that can aid in the characterization of new taxa. The analysis of polar lipids is recommended for the description of new taxa because these lipids can be used to confirm the taxonomic affiliation of many taxa. Thi...
