  • Cholesterol is suitable for use in liposome preparations
  • Cholesterol is a component used for the preparation and study of artificial model membranes
  • One example is a study of valinomycin induced changes in membrane potentials of red blood cell and phospholipid (phosphatidylcholine from egg yolk plus cholesterol) vesicle suspensions
  • Positively charged cyanine dyes were used that fluorimetrically respond to the change in potential
