Kempen, H.J., Glatz, J.F., Leuven, J.A.G., van de Voort, H.A., Katan, M.B., Serum lathosterol concentration is an indicator of whole-body cholesterol synthesis in humans. The Journal of Lipid Research, 1988, Sep., 29:1149-1155.; Krakowiak, P.A., et al., Lathosterolosis: an inborn error of human and murine cholesterol synthesis due to lathosterol 5-desaturase deficiency.

Applications: The labeled direct precursor to cholesterol. By measuring the levels of lathosterol in a patients blood, the amount of cholesterol produced can be measured. Significantly elevated levels of lathosterol can identify patients with increased risk of premature coronary heart disease.
