5β,6β-epoxycholestanol  (Synonyms: Cholesterol 5beta,6beta-epoxide)

Cat. No.: HY-130502
COA Handling Instructions

5β,6β-epoxycholestanol is an oxidative metabolite of cholesterol formed by free-radical and non-radical oxidation of cholesterol at the 5,6 double bond. Induces lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release and apoptosis in macrophage-differentiated U937 cells. Cholesterol 5beta,6beta-epoxide has been found in human fatty streaks and advanced atherosclerotic lesions, but not in normal aortic tissue.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
