Sterol Lipids
Lipid Category

Structure. Ergosterol lipids belong to the sterol lipids. Their structure consists of the steroid structure, four linked hydrocarbon rings, to which a characteristic carbon side-chain is attached and two further methyl groups. Like in cholesterol lipids, the steroid structure, the side-chains, and the methyl groups of ergosterol lipids can be modified.

Function. Ergosterol lipids belong to the sterol lipids.

Similar to cholesteryl esters, ergosteryl esters (EE) mainly serve as fungal pool for both of its components, ergosterol and the fatty acid. Further ergosterol lipids such as campesterol, brassicasterol or stigmasterol are often collectively coined as phytosterols. Like cholesterol lipids, phytosterols serve important functions in plant membranes and their esters function as storage and transportation forms.
