ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA 24-hydroxylase.
Alternative Name(s)
3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestan-26-oate 24-hydroxylase.
3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA oxidase.
THCA-CoA oxidase.
THC-CoA oxidase.
trihydroxycoprostanoyl-CoA oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
(25R)-3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestan-26-oyl-CoA + A + H2O <=> (24R,25R)-3alpha,7alpha,12alpha,24-tetrahydroxy-5beta-cholestan-26-oyl-CoA + AH2
  • Requires ATP.
  • The reaction in mammals possibly involves dehydrogenation to give a 24(25)-double bond followed by hydration.
  • However, in amphibians such as the Oriental fire-bellied toad (Bombina orientalis), it is probable that the product is formed via direct hydroxylation of the saturated side chain of (25R)- 3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestan-26-oate and not via hydration of a 24(25) double bond.
  • In microsomes, the free acid is preferred to the coenzyme A ester, whereas in mitochondria, the coenzyme A ester is preferred to the free-acid form of the substrate.
