Application

Fucosterol has been used:
  • as an environmental contaminant to study its effect on morphological development in growing zebrafish embryos and larvae
  • to study its anxiolytic effects in mice
  • as an external standard to analyze sterols in seaweed samples

Exposure to environmental contaminants has been linked to developmental and reproductive abnormalities leading to infertility, spontaneous abortion, reduced number of offspring, and metabolic disorders. In addition, there is evidence linking environmental contaminants and endocrine disruption to abnormal developmental rate, defects

This work shows that fucosterol, delta5-avenasterol, and similar ethylidene-side chain sterols can undergo acid-catalyzed isomerization to give a mixture of five isomers. Four isomers formed from fucosterol were analyzed, using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and were characterized as delta5-avenasterol, two delta5,23-stigmastadienols

Studies have been conducted on the lymphatic absorption of sitosterol (24 alpha-ethyl cholesterol), stigmasterol (delta 22, 24 alpha-ethyl cholesterol), and fucosterol (24-ethylidine cholesterol) when administered intragastrically to rats. In addition, the effect of each sterol on absorption of endogenous cholesterol
