      Nature - Lab. Invest. 100, 1411–1424 (2020). Samples were chloroform – methanol 1:1 solutions of lipid standards and of liver tissue extracts from wild-type mice (1), from transgenic murine models of hepatic steatosis (2) (mice expressing HBs, hepatitis B virus surface protein), or of cholestasis (3) (mice totally knock-out for the gene of phospholipid translocator ABCB4, ATP-binding cassette subfamily B member 4), or of both (4) (hybrids of mice (2) and (3)). HPTLC on silica gel (preheated at 110°C for 15 min) with n-hexane – diethyl ether – acetic acid 20:5:1. (A) For qualitative analysis, visualization under white light after immersion into anisaldehyde 0.5 % (in sulfuric acid – acetic acid – methanol, 1:2:17), followed by heating at 110°C for 9 min. (B) Identification of lipids was confirmed by elution of the zones of interest with methanol from the HPTLC layer through a TLC-MS interface and a filter frit directly to a quadrupole-orbitrap MS (atmospheric pressure chemical ionization, full HR-MS scan in m/z range 100–1000). (C) For quantitative analysis, visualization at UV 366 nm after derivatization by immersion into primuline reagent (primuline 0.5 g/L in acetone – water 4:1); fluorescence was measured at UV 366 nm (mercury lamp, optical filter for wavelengths above 400 nm, scanning slit 6.0 mm × 0.2 mm, speed 20 mm/s). (A) and (B) allowed the separation and detection of cholesterol, cholesteryl oleate, methyl oleate, free fatty acids (FFA, expressed as oleic acid equivalents) and triacylglycerols (TAG, as triolein equivalents) in liver extracts. (C) showed that TAG was decreased and FFA increased in (3) and (4), compared to (1) and (2). Cholesterol and cholesteryl oleate had no significant changes between groups.

      Planta Med. 85(3), 195-202 (2019). The dichloromethane fraction of an ethanolic extract from Gloeophyllum odoratum sporocarp (Gloeophyllaceae, Basidiomycetes) was submitted to a multistep purification process (conventional, flash and supercritical fluid column chromatography). At each step, fractions were monitored on TLC silica gel with dichloromethane – methanol – water 40:4:1. Detection under white and UV light after derivatization with vanillin sulfuric acid 5 % in methanol and heating. Eight triterpenes were isolated for further identification: eburicodiol, gloeophyllins B and K, hydroxylanosterol, trametenolic acid B (all five from the lanostane type), gloeophyllins A and L (C‑nor-D-homoergosteroid type), and ergosterol peroxide (ergostane type).
