Biochem/physiol Actions

Zymosterone is metabolized to cholesterol synthesis intermediate, zymosterol in the presence of enzyme hydroxysteroid (17β) dehydrogenase 7 (HSD17B7). Zymosterone conversion to zymosterol catalyzed by 3-keto sterol reductase (ERG27) is a key step in yeast ergosterol biosynthesis.

In both humans and mice, 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type-7 (HSD17B7) was described as possessing dual enzymatic functionality. The enzyme was first shown to be able to convert estrone to estradiol in vitro. Later involvement of this enzyme in postsqualene cholesterol biosynthesis

Hydroxysteroid (17beta) dehydrogenase 7 (HSD17B7) has been shown to catalyze the conversion of both estrone to estradiol (17-ketosteroid reductase activity) and zymosterone to zymosterol (3-ketosteroid reductase activity involved in cholesterol biosynthesis) in vitro. To define the metabolic role of the
