  2. Cholesterol


Cholesterol is a sterol, a type of lipid. Cholesterol is biosynthesized by all animal cells and is an essential structural component of animal cell membranes. Cholesterol is a membrane constituent widely found in biological systems and serves the unique purpose of modulating membrane fluidity, elasticity, as well as permeability. The addition of cholesterol to liposome bilayers prevents a lipid exchange and has an additional stabilizing effect.

Cat. No. Product Name CAS No. Purity Chemical Structure
  • HY-N0322
    Cholesterol 57-88-5 98.53%
    Cholesterol is the major sterol in mammals. It is making up 20-25% of structural component of the plasma membrane. Plasma membranes are highly permeable to water but relatively impermeable to ions and protons. Cholesterol plays an important role in determining the fluidity and permeability characteristics of the membrane as well as the function of both the transporters and signaling proteins. Cholesterol is also an endogenous estrogen-related receptor α (ERRα) agonist.
  • HY-N0322A
    Cholesterol (Water Soluble)
    Cholesterol Water Soluble can be used for the research of the effects of cholesterol on the potassium currents in inner hair cells (IHCs). Cholesterol is an integral component of the cell membrane and regulates the activity of ion channels in the lipid bilayer.
