Metabolite Identification
Common Name5-Dehydroepisterol
Description5-Dehydroepisterol is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of steroids (KEGG ID C15780), and is converted from Episterol via the enzyme lathosterol oxidase [EC:1.14.21.6]. It is then converted to 24-Methylenecholesterol via the enzyme 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase [EC:1.3.1.21].
