Comparisons of lens fiber cell membrane isolation methods were made. Although membrane lipid yield from stirring overnight in hypotonic medium followed by low-speed centrifugation was comparable to that from homogenization and high-speed centrifugation, losses in phosphatidyl ethanolamine were observed with the former method. Lyophilization with vacuum replacement by nitrogen did not exert any deleterious effects. A significant difference in total lens lipid was observed between human and the three species of animals investigated.
