Accepted Name
3-beta-hydroxysteroid-4-alpha-carboxylate 3-dehydrogenase (decarboxylating).
Alternative Name(s)
3-beta-hydroxy-4-alpha-methylcholestenecarboxylate 3-dehydrogenase (decarboxylating).
3-beta-hydroxy-4-beta-methylcholestenecarboxylate 3-dehydrogenase (decarboxylating).
3-beta-hydroxy-4-beta-methylcholestenoate dehydrogenase.
Sterol 4-alpha-carboxylic decarboxylase.
Sterol-4-alpha-carboxylate 3-dehydrogenase (decarboxylating).
Reaction catalysed
A 3-beta-hydroxysteroid-4-alpha-carboxylate + NAD(P)(+) <=> a 3-oxosteroid + CO(2) + NAD(P)H
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the decarboxylation of the C-4 carbon and the dehydrogenation of a 3-beta hydroxyl at the C-3 carbon of 3-beta- hydroxysteroid-4-alpha-carboxylates.
  • It is involved in zymosterol and cholesterol biosynthesis.
