Lathosterol is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.{42408,42409} Serum levels of lathosterol correlate with cholesterol synthesis and have been used as biomarkers of excess cholesterol production. Lathosterol accumulates in lathosterolosis, a disorder characterized by a deficiency of lathosterol 5-desaturase, the enzyme that converts lathosterol to 7-dehydro cholesterol (Item No. 14612).{42410}
