Info

cholesterol (plant)

Cholesterol (plant-derived) is a minor plant sterol found in plant cells and a component of surface lipids. It is vital to plant metabolism and indicates the creation of various bioactive plant metabolites. Approximately 25 percent of the brain's lipid content is cholesterol, making it a major component of not just cell plasma membranes but all biological membranes.

Applications

As a structural component in biological membranes, cholesterol is essential to cell biology, membrane dynamics, and lipid metabolism studies. It has a significant effect on membrane integrity, fluidity, and signaling processes.

Cholesterol (plant derived) shows significant value in pharmaceutical applications as it can be used as a pharmaceutical excipient, particularly in the formulation of lipid-based drug delivery systems like lipid nanoparticles (LNPs). By enhancing particle stability through regulating membrane integrity and rigidity, it becomes useful for drug delivery research and development.

Packaging

Avanti Research provides cholesterol (plant derived) in 100mg, 200mg, 500mg, and 1g powder packaging. With over 50 years of experience providing pure lipid products, Avanti Research is thousands of researchers' #1 choice for their lipid research and development.
