Lanosterol synthase

OSC, lanosterol synthase, ERG7, Erg7p
The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the conversion of (S)-2,3 oxidosqualene to lanosterol. The encoded protein is a member of the terpene cyclase/mutase family and catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol, steroid hormones, and vitamin D. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009] (from NCBI)

Zhang et al., Beijing, China. In Reproduction, Feb 2016
In addition, the expression of ovarian somatic cell (OSC)-specific genes, such as Notch2, Foxl2 and Irx3, was negatively affected by GJC blockers, whereas oocyte-related genes, such as Ybx2, Nobox and Sohlh1, were hardly affected, implying that the establishment of GJC during this period may be more important to OSCs than to oocytes.

UNASSIGNED: The cyclization of oxidosqualene to lanosterol, catalyzed by the enzyme oxidosqualene cyclase (OSC), goes through a number of carbocationic high energy intermediates (HEI), and mimicking these intermediates is a promising approach for the development of OSC inhibitors.

In particular, due to their unique position downstream from HMGR, the inhibition of squalene synthase, farnesyl diphosphate farnesyltransferase (FDFT1), squalene epoxidase (SQLE), and oxidosqualene cyclase:lanosterol synthase (OSC) should decrease plasma levels of cholesterol without affecting ubiquinone, dolichol, and isoprenoid metabolism.
