This procedure applies to products that have a specification for the enzymatic activity of cholesterol oxidase. This assay is NOT to be used to assay Cholesterol Oxidase from Schizophyllum commune (Discontinued Product Number C7274) and from Brevibacterium sp. (Discontinued Product Number C8153).
Biosynthesis of cholesterol generally takes place in the endoplasmic reticulum of hepatic cells and begins with acetyl- CoA, which is mainly derived from an oxidation reaction in the mitochondria. Acetyl-CoA and acetoacetyl-CoA are converted to 3-hydroxy- 3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) by HMG-CoA synthase.
