General description

22(R)-hydroxycholesterol is a diastereomer of 22(S)-hydroxycholesterol. It is present in the neonate brain. 22(R)-hydroxycholesterol-d7 is a deuterated form of 22(R)-hydroxycholesterol.

Biochem/physiol Actions

22(R)-hydroxycholesterol (22(R)-HC) is a liver X receptor (LXR) ligand and is a key for the receptor activation.. 22(R)-HC promotes mesenchymal stem cell osteogenesis along with other oxysterols. It also regulates cholesterol homeostasis and suppresses prostate tumor progression. Low levels of 22(R)-HC is observed in Alzheimer′s disease and may be implicated in neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative diseases.

MAP kinase phosphatase (MKP)-1 plays a pivotal role in controlling MAP kinase (MAPK)-dependent (patho) physiological processes. Although MKP-1 gene expression is tightly regulated at multiple levels, the underlying mechanistic details remain largely unknown. In this study, we demonstrate that MKP-1...

Oxysterols, oxygenated by-products of cholesterol biosynthesis, play roles in various physiological and pathological systems. However, the effects of oxysterols on periodontal regeneration are unknown. This study investigated the effects of the specific oxysterol combination of 22(S)-hydroxycholesterol and 20(S)-hydroxycholesterol (SS) on...

Previously, we and other groups reported that liver X receptor (LXR) agonists T0901317, 22(R)-hydroxycholesterol, and 24(S)-hydroxycholesterol suppressed the proliferation of prostate and breast cancer cells. In this study, we report that T0901317 and 22(R)-hydroxycholesterol treatment inhibited the proliferation of different...
