5α-Cholest-7-en-3β-ol was used as a substrate in enzymatic assay for plasma cholesterol. It was used to supplement diet of Daphnia galeata to study the effect on life-history traits.
5α-Cholest-7-en-3β-ol (Lathosterol) is an intermediate in cholesterol biosynthesis pathway. Lathosterol in serum is carried on lipoproteins and is indicative of the rate of cholesterol synthesis. It acts as a marker of synthesis of cholesterol and is not affected by dietary consumption of cholesterol.
