CD Biosynsis offers a cutting-edge biosynthesis of cholesterol service, catering to diverse industries. Leveraging advanced synthetic biology technology, we provide customized solutions for cholesterol biosynthesis.


Biosynthesis of cholesterol is the process of manufacturing cholesterol molecules through synthetic biology techniques. Cholesterol is a vital lipid compound essential for cellular structure, and signaling, and as a precursor for various bioactive molecules. Traditionally, cholesterol is sourced from animal tissues, but our innovative approach allows for sustainable, customizable, and cost-effective production.

Biosynthesis of Cholesterol: Technical Advantages

  • Sustainability. Eliminates the need for cholesterol extraction from animal sources, reducing environmental impact.
  • Cost-Effectiveness. Provides a cost-efficient alternative to traditional extraction methods.
  • Purity Control. Ensures high purity and customizable cholesterol production.
  • Consistency. Enables consistent and reproducible cholesterol synthesis.

Cholesterol Biosynthesis Pathway

Cholesterol biosynthesis follows a highly regulated and intricate pathway. Key steps include the conversion of acetyl-CoA into mevalonate, which is further modified through a series of enzymatic reactions, ultimately leading to cholesterol production. This pathway serves as the foundation for our innovative biosynthesis cholesterol service.
