Metabolite Identification
Common Name3 alpha,7 alpha,24-Trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA
Description3 alpha,7 alpha,24-Trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA is found in the primary bile acid biosynthesis pathway. 3 alpha,7 alpha,24-Trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA is created from 3 alpha,7 alpha-Dihydroxy-5beta-cholest-24-enoyl-CoA through the action of HSD17B4 (EC4.2.1.107). 3 alpha,7 alpha,24-Trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA is then converted to 3 alpha,7 alpha-Dihydroxy-5beta-24-oxocholestanoyl-CoA by HSD17B4 (EC1.1.1.35).
