About the structure and biological function of Sterol Lipids

Structure. Sterol lipids are one of the eight categories of lipids and contain thousands of lipid species. All of these feature a similar molecular structure: they consist of the steroid structure, four linked hydrocarbon rings. Fatty acids, characteristic side-chains, functional groups, sugars, and double bonds – the steroid structure can be modified on hundreds of levels.

Ergosterol lipids are the plant and fungi counterparts to cholesterol lipids. Steroids are a type of sterol lipids which encompass many sterol lipid-based hormones, and secosteroids contain the different classes of vitamin D which are important to bone formation. Bile acids are the end products of cholesterol lipids in animals and serve important functions in the digestion of fats.
