  • 1. 4,4'-Dimethylcholesta-7,9,14-trienol is an intermediate in the metabolism of dihydroagnosterol to cholesterol by rat liver homogenate. 2. This triene is reduced by a rat liver microsomal preparation in the presence of NADPH to give 4,4'-dimethylcholesta-7,9-dienol under anaerobic conditions. 3. Reduction of the triene in the presence of [4-3H2]NADPH resulted in the incorporation of 3H into the product. 4. Under aerobic conditions the triene is converted into cholesterol by a rat liver… CONTINUE READING
