Why bacteria not have a cholesterol?

It is often said that bacteria have a cell wall and do not need cholesterol. In cells like ours, the cholesterol stabilizes the membrane. However, this is not true in all cases. Mycobacterium have no cell wall and have cholesterol *but so do Micrococcus lysodeikticus, Bacillus megaterium, and Proteus mirabilisdo. They have cell walls.* The answer you need will depend on the level you are in school. If in college Micro, the entire answer is what you should use. Otherwise, use the section before the *.

How does probiotic yogurt lower cholesterol?

Several scientific studies have been carried out to test whether yogurt consumption reduces cholesterol levels or not, but so far the results are not consistent.There are at least two ways in which bacteria could affect serum cholesterol. As the bacteria in the lower intestines ferment, they produce compounds called short chain fatty acids or SCFA's. One SCFA - propionic acid in particular has been shown to decrease cholesterol synthesis in the liver. This would reduce the amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood. Some bacteria also have the ability to break down bile acids. Bile acids are secreted into the intestines but is re- absorbed and so most of the cholesterol is re-cycled back into the body. If the bile acids are broken down, the cholesterol is not reabsorbed but is flushed out in the feces.
