Identification and Determination of Epidermal Fatty Acids Extracted in Walterinnesia morgani (Elapidae) Using GC/FID

Identification and Determination of Epidermal Fatty Acids Extracted in Walterinnesia morgani... Walterinnesia morgani is one of the venomous snakes that localized in Khuzestan Province in southwestern of Iran, The epidermis of snakes is made of six epidermal layers termed oberhautchen, β, mesos α, lacunar, and clear, and have been shown to function as the main barrier to evaporative water loss and essential for life on dry land. Regarding the temperature of Khuzestan province and its high temperature, identification of fatty acids in W. morgani skin can help us to identify the adaptability of this species to temperature conditions. The present study skin lipids were analyzed by GC/FID and fatty acids identified in skin include: Octadecanoic acid, Linoleic acid, Tricosanoic acid, Cis-9-Oleic acid, Nervonic acid, Heptadecanoic acid, Palmitic acid and Cis-11-eicosenoic acid. The presence of these fatty acids in the W. morgani skin is effective in survival and tolerance in tropical weather conditions in Khuzestan province. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Proceedings of the Zoological Society Springer Journals

Abstract

Walterinnesia morgani is one of the venomous snakes that localized in Khuzestan Province in southwestern of Iran, The epidermis of snakes is made of six epidermal layers termed oberhautchen, β, mesos α, lacunar, and clear, and have been shown to function as the main barrier to evaporative water loss and essential for life on dry land. Regarding the temperature of Khuzestan province and its high temperature, identification of fatty acids in W. morgani skin can help us to identify the adaptability of this species to temperature conditions. The present study skin lipids were analyzed by GC/FID and fatty acids identified in skin include: Octadecanoic acid, Linoleic acid, Tricosanoic acid, Cis-9-Oleic acid, Nervonic acid, Heptadecanoic acid, Palmitic acid and Cis-11-eicosenoic acid. The presence of these fatty acids in the W. morgani skin is effective in survival and tolerance in tropical weather conditions in Khuzestan province.
