Diminuto the enzyme 3-beta-hydroxysterol delta-24-reductase (DHCR24), a member of the flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD)-dependent oxidoreductases, catalyzes the reduction of the delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates during cholesterol biosynthesis. Highly expressed in brain and adrenal gland with moderate expression in liver, lung, spleen, prostate and spinal cord. Low expression in heart, uterus and prostate. Undetectable in blood cells. Overexpressed in the adenoma tissue of patients with Cushing's syndrome. May be involved in the molecular events of adrenocortical tumorigenesis by facilitating steroid synthesis and cell growth. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
