- Fucosterol-epoxide lyase
enzymology, a fucosterol-epoxide lyase (EC number|126.96.36.199) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:(24R,24'R)-fucosterol epoxide desmosterol + acetaldehyde
Hence, this enzyme has one substrate,
(24R,24'R)-fucosterol epoxide, and two products, desmosteroland acetaldehyde.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
lyases, specifically the aldehyde-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (24R,24'R)-fucosterol-epoxide acetaldehyde-lyase (desmosterol-forming). This enzyme is also called (24R,24'R)-fucosterol-epoxide acetaldehyde-lyase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|99676-42-3."
