Background

Dehydroergosterol is a naturally occurring, fluorescent analog of cholesterol (ex/em = 324/375 nm) that mimics the properties of cholesterol in cell membranes.[1] It is readily bound by cholesterol-binding proteins and has been used for real-time probing of the sterol environment and to elucidate intracellular sterol trafficking in living organisms.[1]
