A steroidogenesis inhibitor, also known as a steroid biosynthesis inhibitor, is a type of drug which inhibits one or more of the enzymes that are involved in the process of steroidogenesis, the biosynthesis of endogenous steroids and steroid hormones. They may inhibit the production of cholesterol and other sterols, sex steroids such as androgens, estrogens, and progestogens, corticosteroids Biological target: Steroidogenic enzymes. 2. Comparison of the Sterol Biosynthesis Pathways in Mammals, Fungi, and Trypanosomatids. A comparative schematic diagram of the sterol biosynthesis pathway in eukaryotes is shown in Figure least 20 metabolic steps are necessary to synthesize such sterols as cholesterol and ergosterol, with some steps involving specific enzymes that differ between mammalian cells and microorganisms .

Sterol Biosynthesis Inhibitors Secondary Effects and Enhanced in Vivo Efficacy DIETER BERG.

Sterol biosynthesis is one of the few areas of difference in primary metabolism between fungi and animals. Unlike animals that synthesize desalkyl sterols, such as cholesterol (cholesten-3β-ol), many pathogenic fungi synthesize alkylsterols, such . INTRODUCTION. Most eukaryotic cells contain and synthesize sterols. Whereas cholesterol is the unique sterol of vertebrates and ergosterol the major sterol of most fungi and some unicellular algae, most higher plants contain a complex mixture in which cholesterol is a minor component and ethyl sterols (sitosterol and stigmasterol) account for more than 60% and methyl sterols account for. The mechanism of each of the reactions in the post-squalene segment of the fungal and higher plant sterol biosynthetic pathway is outlined. The inhibitors of the enzymes catalyzing the reactions are described and how inhibition is brought about is explained in the areas where it is known.

Allenic analogues (1) and (2) of fucosterol (9) and desmosterol (11) were synthesized and the former was found to be a specific inhibitor of sterol metabolism in the silkworm.

In the two other phenotypes (Ani R2 and Ani R3), resistance extended to various other groups of fungicide, including dicarboximides, phenylpyrroles and sterol biosynthesis inhibitors. The success of the sterol biosynthesis inhibitor (SBI) fungicides is essentially the success of the triazole fungicides. The demethylation inhibitor (DMI) fungicides are the most important mode‐of‐action class, based on their economic importance within the SBI by:
