Term Detail
GO term:positive regulation of cholesterol storage
Synonym: positive regulation of cholesterol sequestration
GO id:GO:0010886
Definition:Any process that increases the rate or extent of cholesterol storage. Cholesterol storage is the accumulation and maintenance in cells or tissues of cholesterol, cholest-5-en-3 beta-ol, the principal sterol of vertebrates and the precursor of many steroids, including bile acids and steroid hormones.
Number of paths to term: 24
