Cholesterol analogs are often used to investigate lipid trafficking and membrane organization of native cholesterol. Here, the potential of various spin (doxyl moiety) and fluorescent (7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl (NBD) group) labeled cholesterol analogs as well as of fluorescent cholestatrienol and the naturally occurring dehydroergosterol to mimic the unique properties of native cholesterol in lipid membranes was studied in 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC… CONTINUE READING
