AbstractFrom Calendula officinalis leaves three cellular subtractions (mitochondrial, Golgi membranes and microsomal) were obtained and enzymatically characterized. The contents of Δ0, Δ5, Δ7, Δ5, 22 sterols, as well as those of 24-methylenecholesterol and clerosterol, in the free and bound in the form of esters, glucosides and acylated glucosides were determined in these fractions. The results revealed the predominance of free sterols in the microsomal fraction, of esters in the mitochondrial fraction and of steryl glucosides and acylated glucosides in the Golgi fraction.
