Medical Definition of Delta 14-sterol reductase

1. Reduces ignosterol to ergosterol; NADPH-dependent enzyme that catalyses the formal trans addition of hydrogen across the 14,15-pi bond in 8,14-sterol dienes; forms 4,4-dimethylzymosterol in lanosterol metabolism pathway from 4,4-dimethyl-5alpha-cholesta-8,14,25-trien-3beta-ol or from 4,4-dimethyl-cholesta-8,14,24-trienol; erg24 from saccharomyces cerevisiae Registry number: EC 1.3.1.- Synonym: ignosterol reductase, delta 8,14-sterol delta 14-reductase, 14,15-sterol reductase, delta 8,14-steroid 14-reductase, delta 14,15-reductase, sterol c-14 reductase, c-14 sterol reductase, erg24 gene product (26 Jun 1999)
