Calculation of cholesterol in the peripheral tissue
Tissue Concentration
Liver 70000 mg
Intestine 3120 mg
Remaining cholesterol in peripheral tissue 70000-3120= 66880 mg
Liver 10000 mg of stored cholesterol, which represents 14% of overall hepatic cholesterol
Peripheral tissue Assuming 14% is stored here: 14% of 66880=3963.2 mg
Peripheral free cholesterol 66880-9363.2=57516.8 mg
