Abstract: Cholesterol is an important constituent of cellular membranes playing a fundamental role in many biological processes. This sterol affects membrane permeability, lateral lipid organization, signal transduction and membrane trafficking. Intracellular sterol transport modes and pathways as well as the regulation of sterol metabolism and disposition in various tissues are areas of intense research. Progress is intimately linked to development and use of appropriate analogs, which closely mimic the properties of c…
