Sterol-modified phospholipids stabilize bilayers but do not exchange between membranes as freely as cholesterol. This new class of phospholipids provides a new tool for biophysical studies on membranes and may improve liposomal drug delivery in organs predisposed to the extraction of free cholesterol from bilayers, such as the skin, lung or blood.
