A modified scheme for the synthesis of zymosterol, one of the biosynthetically important yeast sterols, starting from from 3-benzoyloxyergosta-8(14),22-dien-15-one has been suggested.
Androstane and delta15-androstane analogues of brassinosteroids were synthesized from dehydroepiandrosterone. The key stage, hydroxylation of 17beta-acetoxyandrost-2-en-6-one double bond with OsO4, yielded the corresponding 2alpha,3alpha- and 2beta,3beta-diols. The target 2alpha,3alpha-isopropylidenedioxy-6,6-ethylenedioxy-5alpha-androst-15-en-17-one and… (More)
In the mitochondria of animal steroidogenic tissues, cytochrome P450(SCC), encoded by the CYP11A1 gene, catalyzes the conversion of cholesterol into pregnenolone - the general precursor of all steroid hormones. In this work, we study the steroid metabolism in transgenic tobacco plants carrying the CYP11A1 cDNA cytochrome P450(SCC)from the bovine adrenal… (More)
