Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description less than normal amount in the liver of the principal sterol of vertebrates and the precursor of many steroids, including bile acids and steroid hormones; it is a component of the plasma membrane lipid bilayer and of plasma lipoproteins and can be found in all animal tissues (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0010026)
