Does somebody know the optimum ratio of chloroform to aqueous
solution when extracting lipids?  Is methanol necessary to be added
in the solution?  Does salt help to pellet(in the middle) the 
proteins in the solution?  
I remember that 4xvol chloroform works best, but I am not
sure.  Any suggestions and comments are appreciated.
