sterol-C5-desaturase (ERG3 delta-5-desaturase homolog, S. cerevisiae)-like
This gene encodes an enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis. The encoded protein catalyzes the conversion of lathosterol into 7-dehydrocholesterol. Mutations in this gene have been associated with lathosterolosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described.
SC5DL involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways SC5DL participated on our site, such as Steroid biosynthesis, Metabolic pathways, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with SC5DL were listed below. Creative Biomart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
SC5DL has several biochemical functions, for example, C-5 sterol desaturase activity, iron ion binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by SC5DL itself. We selected most functions SC5DL had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with SC5DL. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
