IUBMB Comments
Contains FAD. Cholesterol oxidases are secreted bacterial bifunctional enzymes that catalyse the first two steps in the degradation of cholesterol. The enzyme catalyses the oxidation of the 3beta-hydroxyl group to a keto group, and the isomerization of the double bond in the oxidized steroid ring system from the Delta5 position to Delta6 position (cf. EC, steroid Delta-isomerase).
