(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID4047
Official gene symbolLSS
Full namelanosterol synthase (2,3-oxidosqualene-lanosterol cyclase)
Gene summaryThe 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.
