The serum cholesterol changes in infected Perdicula asiatica
Siva Sai Kumari
The cholesterol was the probable source from which body synthesizes other steroids. Under normal conditions, acetyl-coa which was the precursor for the synthesis of cholesterol. But in pathological conditions, most of the Acetyl-coa was utilized in the Krebâ€™s cycle to release extra energy needed for the host aswell as the parasite. Therefore, cholesterol precursor molecules may not be available for syntheses of cholesterol. Hence this may lead to a decrease in the cholesterol content.
