A new sulfated steroid triol has been identified in extracts of the spongeTrachyopsis halichondrioides and its structure has been established as 24-isopropyl-5α-cholest-22-ene-2β,3α,6α-triol trisulfate. The possibility has been shown for the first time of the existence of identical side chains for free sterols and trisulfated steroids.
