Between Two Oxysterols Component, 7-Ketocholesterol

Satisfactory Essays
The seminar I went to was about an investigation of the molecular-level interaction between two oxysterols components, 7-Ketocholesterol and 5-6-Epoxycholesterol, performed by Dr. Telesford. Oxysterols are derivatives of cholesterol, which have been associated with several disorders such as, cancer, lung disorders, and atherosclerosis. The main points of the speaker where the interfacial behavior of cholesterol, diseases associated, experimental methods, conditions and results obtained. The experiment was done in room temperature 22C, using a common method to study molecular interaction which is Surface Tensiometry. In this process, a dish was used to measure the interfacial tension of the oxysterol at a liquid interface and its behavior was
