$52.95USD Each


Compare the tetracyclic ring structure of this assembled molecular model of cholesterol to those of progesterone & testosterone. Cholesterol contributes to cell membrane fluidity, permeability & stability, properties limited in relatively inflexible plant cell walls.

Cholesterol is an essential precursor or intermediate compound mammals use to produce steroid hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. The latter are produced in the liver and are important for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K in the small intestine.

Build the model yourself & save money. Our online organic molecular model generator will list the parts you need. Choose the model style you prefer, enter the compound name, then press "Build & Show Purchase Options" The first set of results will be the list of parts needed to build the model. Just add to cart, checkout & you're done.

The chemical formula of cholesterol is C27H46O. It has many structural similarities to sex hormones such as testosterone and progesterone. These structures can all be built with our "Ultimate Student Organic Chemistry Molecular Model Set. Another option, our Class Organic Chemistry Set, done in Orbit style, can build all structures simultaneously.
