This gene encodes an enzyme that removes the C(7-8) doublebond in the B ring of sterols and catalyzes the conversion of7-dehydrocholesterol to cholesterol. This gene is ubiquitouslyexpressed and its transmembrane protein localizes to theendoplasmic reticulum membrane and nuclear outer membrane.Mutations in this gene cause Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS); asyndrome that is metabolically characterized by reduced serumcholesterol levels and elevated serum 7-dehydrocholesterol levelsand phenotypically characterized by mental retardation, facialdysmorphism, syndactyly of second and third toes, andholoprosencephaly in severe cases to minimal physical abnormalitiesand near-normal intelligence in mild cases. Alternative splicingresults in multiple transcript variants that encode the sameprotein.
