05/31/1991 - "Stable isotope dilution assay for 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,25-tetrol and 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23,25-pentol in human serum using [26,27-D6] labeled internal standards; a highly accurate approach to the serological diagnosis of cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis."
07/30/1986 - "The urinary excretions of 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23,25-pentol of both groups were practically absent and no selection of carriers with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis could be made on that basis. "
07/30/1986 - "Patients suffering from cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (an autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism) can easily be distinguished from patients not suffering from this disease, as the first excrete large amounts of the bile alcohol, 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23,25-pentol, in urine, whereas the second do not. "
01/01/1991 - "Defective side chain oxidation in patients with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) leads to synthesis of bile alcohols such as 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,25-tetrol and 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23,25-pentol. "
08/01/1984 - "Absolute configuration at C-23 of 5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23,25-pentol, one of the bile alcohols isolated from the patients with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, was unequivocally determined as 23S by conversion of a key intermediate, (23S)-5 beta-cholest-25-ene-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23-tetrol to either the bile alcohol of known absolute configuration, (23R)-5 beta-cholestane-3 alpha,7 alpha,12 alpha,23-tetrol, or the naturally occurring 23,25-pentol."
