Are there differences in cell membrane cholesterol levels between cell types?

With different cell types, and cell functions, are there distinct levels of cholesterol in each cell type's cell membrane, or do all cell types have a similar amount of cholesterol? I am assuming certain cell types require different levels of cell membrane stability, and as such, different levels of cholesterol in that cell membrane.
