3 Metabolic defect in cholesterol 7a-hydroxylase deficiency. The classic pathway for bile acid synthesis shown in (A) begins with CYP7A1, which converts cholesterol into 7a-hydroxycholesterol. This pathway mainly produces cholic acid in humans. CYP7A1 deficiency markedly reduces bile acids in the bile and feces, the major route of cholesterol excretion, and increases the pool of cholesterol in the liver thereby inhibiting low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor activity and raising plasma cholesterol.
