Term Information [More information on cholesterol esterification]

Accession
GO:0034435
Name
cholesterol esterification
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A lipid modification process in which a sterol ester is formed by the combination of a carboxylic acid (often a fatty acid) and cholesterol. In the blood this process is associated with the conversion of free cholesterol into cholesteryl ester, which is then sequestered into the core of a lipoprotein particle.
