ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.15.6

Accepted Name
cholesterol monooxygenase (side-chain-cleaving).
Alternative Name(s)
cholesterol 20-22-desmolase.
cholesterol C20-22 desmolase.
cholesterol desmolase.
cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme.
cholesterol side-chain-cleaving enzyme.
CYP11A1.
cytochrome p450scc.
cytochrome P-450scc.
steroid 20-22 desmolase.
steroid 20-22-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
cholesterol + 6 H(+) + 3 O2 + 6 reduced [adrenodoxin] <=> 4-methylpentanal + 4 H2O + 6 oxidized [adrenodoxin] + pregnenolone
Comment(s)
  • The reaction proceeds in three stages, with two hydroxylations at C-22 and C-20 preceding scission of the side-chain between carbons 20 and 22.
  • The initial source of the electrons is NADPH, which transfers the electrons to the adrenodoxin via EC 1.18.1.6.
