Cholestanol-d5 is a deuterated form of cholestanol. Cholestanol is a plant saturated sterol and has Δ5 double bond to the 5α position in the cholesterol structure and is a 5α-dihydro derivative of cholesterol.
Cholestanol deuterated has been administered in small intestine samples for the quantification of sterols by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The levels of cholesterol and cholestanol are elevated in tendons and brain in cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis due to the CYP27A1 (Cytochrome P450 Family 27 Subfamily A Member 1) deficiency. Cholestanol-d5 is useful as an internal standard to spike sediment samples for tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) for fecal sterol quantification. Cholestanol is a cholesterol absorption biomarker.
