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

Understanding the distribution of cholesterol in phospholipid membranes is of key importance in membrane biophysics, primarily since cholesterol enriched regions, rafts, are known to play a special role in protein function. In this work, quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM)-based

Although the mechanism by which the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) promotes steroidogenesis has been studied extensively, it remains incompletely characterized. Because structural analysis has revealed a hydrophobic sterol-binding pocket (SBP) within StAR, this study sought to examine the regulatory

Grazing incidence x-ray diffraction measurements were performed on single hydrated bilayers and monolayers of Ceramide/Cholesterol/1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocyholine at varying concentrations. There are substantial differences in the phase and structure behavior of the crystalline domains formed within the bilayers relative to the corresponding
