27-Hydroxycholesterol | Cholesterol oxidation metabolite

27-Hydroxycholesterol (20380-11-4) is a metabolite resulting from the action of sterol 27-hydroxylase on cholesterol. Concentrations of 27-hydroxycholesterol are elevated in patients with Alzheimers disease and mild cognitive impairment.1,2 Endogenous selective estrogen receptor modulator3 and ligand for the liver X receptor(EC50M = 85nM for LXR7alpha; and 71nM for LXRβ)4.
