ENZYME entry: EC 3.3.2.11

Accepted Name
Cholesterol-5,6-oxide hydrolase.
Alternative Name(s)
ChEH.
Cholesterol-epoxide hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 5,6-alpha-epoxy-5-alpha-cholestan-3-beta-ol + H(2)O <=> cholestane-3-beta,5-alpha,6-beta-triol
  • 5,6-beta-epoxy-5-beta-cholestan-3-beta-ol + H(2)O <=> cholestane-3-beta,5-alpha,6-beta-triol
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme appears to work equally well with both diastereoisomers of cholesterol 5,6-epoxide.
  • The product is a competitive inhibitor of the reaction.
