    • Abstract

       

      Influence of starvation has been observed on the total cholesterol levels of the brain and liver of the cat-fish,H. fossilis (Bloch). The cholesterol level decreased with starvation in liver but in brain, after registering an initial fall, it showed a distinct rise. The variations in the cholesterol level of fish observed during starvation have been attributed to the changes in the rate of cholesterol synthesis and metabolism.
