General description

Cholesterol is a minor sterol present in plants. It is majorly associated with the plant membranes and is a constituent of leaf surface lipids.

Application

Cholesterol has been used:
  • in the preparation of small unilamellar vesicles
  • in the generation of thymoquinone (TQ) loaded liposomes for administering into murine model with Candida albicans infection
  • in the preparation of small unilamellar vesicles for structured illumination microscopy studies
