Metabolite Identification
Common Name4alpha-Formyl-5alpha-cholesta-8-en-3beta-ol
Description4alpha-formyl-5alpha-cholesta-8-en-3beta-ol is a 3-beta-hydroxysterol that is an intermediate in cholesterol biosynthesis II (via 24,25-dihydrolanosterol). It is a substrate for C-4 methyl sterol oxidase (SC4MOL) and can be generated from the enzymatic oxidation of 4alpha-hydroxymethyl-5alpha-cholesta-8-en-3beta-ol or from the enzymatic reduction of 4alpha-carboxy-5alpha-cholesta-8-en-3beta-ol. The sequence of reactions and the types of intermediates in cholesterol biosynthesis II (via 24,25-dihydrolanosterol) may vary. Alternate routes exist because reduction of the carbon 24,25 double bond on the hydrocarbon side chain of the sterol ring structure by sterol delta24-reductase can occur at multiple points in the pathway, giving rise to different intermediates. These intermediates, with or without a double bond in the hydrocarbon side chain, can serve as substrates for the other enzymes in the pathway.
