Lipids Cholesterol Rich from adult bovine serum has been used as one of the lipid component to generate erythroblasts ex vivo. It has also been used as a standard to determine muscle cholesterol level, spectrophotometrically.
Cholesterol significantly affects the property of phospholipid membrane such as fluidity and membrane protein function. It exhibits a condensing effect towards phospholipids. Cholesterol-phospholipid interaction influences physiological properties of a lipid bilayer. Cholesterol serves as a precursor of bile acids, steroid hormones and vitamin D. Uncontrolled level of plasma cholesterol might lead to the risk of cardiovascular disorder.
Cholesterol is a lipid molecule, found integrated to the cell membrane.
