Gas chromatographic and gas chromatographic/tandem mass spectrometric characterization of precursors on the sesterterpene pathway for steroid biosynthesis.

TLDR
The present findings that sesterterpene pathway intermediates are present as endogenous compounds in tissue extracts, together with the previously reported radiochemical data, give further support to the sesterTERPene pathway hypothesis.

Heterodox notions on pathways of steroidogenesis.

TLDR
The proposition that the true intermediates in the biosynthetic processes leading to the formation of the steroid hormones are enzyme-bound, transient species that proceed from precursor to hormonal products by means of concerted reacceleration is examined.

TLDR
The results indicate that the C25-sesterterpene pathway is a possible in vivo alternate pathway of steroidogenesis, not involving either squalene or cholesterol as obligatory intermediates.

It is widely accepted that cholesterol is the precursor of the steroid hormones. However, there are reports suggesting that there could be some other pathway not involving cholesterol (Heard et al.,

TLDR
It is concluded that these findings are most readily explained by limited specificity of the enzymes concerned in the conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone.
