The phospholipids of bovine, rabbit, and human lenses contain cephalin lecithin, and sphingomyelin but their distribution differs with each species. There is suggestive evidence that there may also be plasmalogen in the lens, but, if so, it represents a minor phospholipid component. The fatty acid composition of each phospholipid dffers in each specie, with most of the differences centering around 16:0, 18:1, and 24:1.
