A chloroform-methanol extract of the musculocutaneous sac of the Far-Eastern holothurianC. japonica has yielded a fraction of sterol sulfates (13% of the weight of the extract, 0.8% of the weight of the dry biomass), the main components of which were derivatives of cholest-5-en-3β-ol, 24-methylene-, 24-ethyl-, and 24-ethylidenecholest-5-en-3β-ols, 5α-cholestan-3β-ol, and 24-methyl- and 24-methylene-5α-cholesten-3β-ol; among the minor components were found the sulfates of 24-ethyl-5α-cholestan-3β-ol of cholesta-5,22-dien-3β-ol, of a Δ5-C30 sterol, and also of dienic and trienic C26 sterols.
