Lipids associated with the abundant P17 and P44 proteins of D. renale pseudocoelomic fluid. Lipids were extracted from purified P44, P17 or unfractionated PCF as described in Methods, and separated by TLC to resolve polar lipids. Rat liver lipids were included for comparison. PCF contains similar lipids to rat liver but P44 appeared to associate selectively with fatty acids. P17 shows trace association with fatty acids but does not bind DAUDA (see main text)
