20α,22R-Dihydroxycholesterol


20α,22R-Dihydroxycholesterol, or 3β-cholest-5-ene-3,20,22-triol is an endogenous, metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the steroid hormones from cholesterol Cholesterol 3β-cholest-5-en-3-ol is hydroxylated by cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme P450scc to form 22R-hydroxycholesterol, which is subsequently hydroxlated again by P450scc to form 20α,22R-dihydroxycholesterol, and finally the bond between carbons 20 and 22 is cleaved by P450scc to form pregnenolone 3β-3-hydroxypregn-5-en-20-one, the precursor to the steroid hormones
