      (22,23-methylene-23,24-dimethylcholest-5-en-3ß-ol or gorgost-5-en-3ß-ol)
      Gorgosterol (22,23-methylene-23,24-dimethylcholest-5-en-3ß-ol or gorgost-5-en-3ß-ol) is a sterol with a gorgostane skelton characterized by a cyclopropyl group at C22,C23 on the side-chain. This sterol, its hydrogenated counterpart gorgostanol and 4-methylated analogues have been reported in a number of marine invertebrates, dinoflagellates and organisms that prey on these species.
