Cholesterol Chemical Properties
Cholesterol is a derivative of the cyclopentane more thin, is human body cell membrane phase structure and an important component of nerve myelin, weig is 70 kg of normal person,
containing about 140 grams of cholesterol in the body, as early as the 18th , people have found cholesterol in bile stone chemists the herschel in 1816 will be a name to this with the nature of the lipid material cholesterol cholesterol widely exists in animals, especially in the most abundant in the brain and nerve tissue in the liver and kidney and spleen skin bile content is high also its solubility is similar to fat, insoluble in water, soluble in ether chloroform solvent, etc.
Cholesterol is required to build and maintain membranes; it modulates membrane fluidity over the range of physiological temperatures.
The hydroxyl group on cholesterol interacts with the polar head groups of the membrane phospholipids and sphingolipids, while the bulky steroid and the hydrocarbon chain are embedded in the membrane, alongside the nonpolar fatty acid chain of the other lipids. Through the interaction with the phospholipid fatty acid chains, cholesterol increases membrane packing, which reduces membrane fluidity.In this structural role, cholesterol reduces the permeability of the plasma membrane to neutral solutes, protons, (positive hydrogen ions) and sodium ions.
1.Cholesterol Used for flocculent cephalin cholesterol test, vitamin D such as raw materials and biochemical research;
2.Cholesterol Used as a biochemical reagents and emulsifier, etc
3.Cholesterol is the important raw material for manufacturing hormones, and can be used as emulsifier;
4.Cholesterol used as emulsifier, artificial bezoar vitamin D LCD synthetic hormones of raw materials, used for biochemical research.
