This review examines the recent high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) literature on the effects of biotic and abiotic factors on certain analytes in the medically important freshwater snail, Biomphalaria glabrata. The analytes studied were lipids, lipophilic pigments, amino acids, and carbohydrates. As determined by HPTLC, various factors, such as larval parasitism, estivation, temperature changes, and others, alter the metabolism of the snail and cause significant changes in the chemical contents of the analytes under study.
