Cultures of Tetrahymena pyriformis were incubated with various sterols and the extent of dehydrogenation at C-7 and C-22 was determined. The sterols incubated were desmosterol, 22-dehydrodesmosterol,… Expand
The configuration of Δ5,7,22-sterols in a tracheophyte
Abstract The epimer of ergosterol at C-24 was formed by the metabolism of 24α-methyl-cholesterol in the protozoan, Tetrahymena pyriformis . This is the first time 24-epiergosterol has been obtained… Expand
