The sterol substrate specificity of acyl CoA: :cholesterol acyltransferase from rat liver.
Rat liver microsomes were incubated with various sterols suspended in Triton WR-1339, and the extent of esterification of these sterols by acyl CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase was determined. A 3Expand

Rotational isomerism about the 17(20)-bond of steroids and euphoids as shown by the crystal structures of euphol and tirucallol.
The influence of configuration at C-20 on rotation about the 17(20)-bond in steroids and euphoids was examined by x-ray crystallographic studies of the C-20 epimers euphol and tirucallol. The H atomExpand
