Ergosterol Chemical Structure

CAS NO. 57-87-4

Ergosterol is a sterol and a biological precursor (a provitamin) to vitamin D2. Ergosterol is a component of fungal cell membranes, serving the same function that cholesterol serves in animal cells. Because ergosterol is present in fungal cell membranes yet absent in animal cell membranes, it is a useful target for antifungal drugs. .

Targets
In vitro DMSO 0.01 mg/mL (<1 mM)
Water <1 mg/mL (<1 mM)
Ethanol <1 mg/mL (<1 mM)
* <1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* Please note that Adooq tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
