Application

25-Hydroxycholesterol was used to treat mouse neuroblastoma cells to activate the ABCA1 signaling and in studies related to fatty acid metabolism.

Packaging

10, 25, 100 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

25-Hydroxycholesterol is a side-chain oxysterol that reportedly triggers activation of a number of cholesterol molecules. This triggers their movement from cell membrane to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). 25-Hydroxycholesterol affects the immune system and has a key role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
Suppresses the cleavage of sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs). 25-Hydroxycholesterol induces apoptosis through down-regulation of Bcl-2 expression and activation of caspases.

Preparation Note

A stock solution of 25-Hydroxycholesterol may be prepared in ethanol and dissolved in cell culture medium to give a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
