MetaCyc Enzyme: C-14 sterol reductase

Gene: ERG24 Accession Number: YNL280C (MetaCyc)

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

C-14 sterol reductase catalyzes a reduction reaction in the pathway for ergosterol biosynthesis. The ERG24 gene encoding the protein was identified and cloned by complementation of a mutant defective in ergosterol biosynthesis [Lorenz92]. Inactivation of ERG24 is conditionally lethal - mutants can't grow on glucose, but they are able to grow on certain defined media, producing ignosterol instead of ergosterol [Crowley96].
