Description

Application

5α-Cholestane was used as standard in cholesterol analysis by GC and HPLC.

Packaging

1, 5 g in glass bottle

100 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

5α-Cholestane is a sterol produced endogenously from cholesterol and has been isolated from human feces. It is derived from cholesterol by the action of intestinal microorganisms. Derivatives of 5α-cholestane in plants are called Brassinosteroids that selectively activate the PPI3K/Akt pathway.

Preparation Note

5α-Cholestane yields clear to slightly hazy, colorless to faint yellow solution in chloroform at 50 mg/ml.
