Pathway: Metabolism (Homo sapiens)
Metabolic processes in human cells generate energy through the oxidation of molecules consumed in the diet and mediate the synthesis of diverse essential molecules not taken in the diet as well as the inactivation and elimination of toxic ones generated endogenously or present in the extracellular environment. The processes of energy metabolism can be classified into two groups according to whether the

Pathway: Cholesterol biosynthesis (Homo sapiens)
Cholesterol is synthesized de novo from from acetyl CoA. The overall synthetic process is outlined in the figure below. Enzymes whose regulation plays a major role in determining the rate of cholesterol synthesis in the body are highlighted in red, and connections to other metabolic processes are indicated. The transformation of lanosterol into cholesterol requires multiple steps, including the removal

Pathway: Metabolism of lipids and lipoproteins (Homo sapiens)
Lipids are hydrophobic but otherwise chemically diverse molecules that play a wide variety of roles in human biology. They include ketone bodies, fatty acids, triacylglycerols, phospholipids and sphingolipids, eicosanoids, cholesterol, bile salts, steroid hormones, and fat-soluble vitamins. They function as a major source of energy (fatty acids, triacylglycerols, and ketone bodies), are major constitue

Reaction: Zymosterol is isomerized to cholesta-7,24-dien-3beta-ol (Homo sapiens)
Isomerization of zymosterol to cholesta-7,24-dien-3beta-ol is catalyzed by EBP in the endoplasmic reticulum. The biochemical details of the reaction have been established through studies of purified rat EBP; the role of the human enzyme has been established through studies of patients deficient in it (Derry et al. 1999; Braverman et al. 1999)
