vegetable sources of cholesterol[edit]

Secondary metabolism : High cholesterol in tomato
A straightforward approach reveals the full cholesterol biosynthetic pathway in tomato, which is composed of ten enzymatic steps, opening the door for bioengineering of high-value molecules in crops. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that cholesterogenesis evolved from the more ancient phytosterol pathway. https://www.nature.com/articles/nplants2016213

Plant cholesterol biosynthetic pathway overlaps with phytosterol metabolism[edit]

The amount of cholesterol made by many plants is not negligible. Whereas cholesterogenesis in animals was elucidated decades ago, the plant pathway has remained enigmatic. Among other roles, cholesterol is a key precursor for thousands of bioactive plant metabolites https://www.nature.com/articles/nplants2016205

Foundations II 2019 group 3a peer review[edit]

Part 1:

1.Do the group’s edits substantially improve the article as described in the Wikipedia peer review “guiding framework”?

Yes, the addition of the prevalence and a brief description of the mechanism of familial hypercholerolemia provides clear information from a reliable source in a neutral manner. Pkhouder (talk) 04:37, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

yesKmhudson22 (talk) 16:27, 6 August 2019 (UTC) 2. Has the group achieved its overall goals for improvement?

References for hypercholesterolemia were added, and information from AHA guidelines regarding the correlation between LDL lowering and reduced risks of CV disease and stroke. Pkhouder (talk) 04:37, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Yes, information about cholesterol testing was added with references to the AHA guidelines Kylett1 (talk) 16:24, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

"Lack of an association or an inverse association between low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol and mortality in the elderly: a systematic review"[edit]

This study, referenced at the end of the "Hypercholesterolemia" section, is problematic (see lipid hypothesis#Uffe Ravnskov and THINCS) and should not be cited uncritically.
