The purification of sterol carrier protein2 (SCP2), purified 1500-fold to homogeneity from the 303,000 x g supernatant (S303) of rat liver, has recently been described (Noland, B. J., Arebalo, R. E., Hansbury, E., and Scallen T. J. (1980) J. Biol. Chem, 255, 4282-4289). Since SCP2 is required for the synthesis of cholesterol by microsomal membranes, it was decided to test the hypothesis that SCP2 might also participate in enzymatic reactions which utilize cholesterol as a substrate.
