	Hi everyone!

	I recently tried the fluorescent Filipin stain for cholesterol, as
found in Bancroft and Stevens.  Problem is, I'm having a hard time finding
any information about how the stain works.  I know that Filipin comes from
Streptomyces filipinensis, and is an antibiotic, but that's about it.  Can
anyone help explain the staining mechanism to me?

	Any help would be greatly appreciated!
