Fig 2. Schematic diagram of the reaction catalyzed by Erg3p in yeast.

Erg3p is responsible for introducing a double bond at the C-5 carbon (denoted by the star) of the B-ring of episterol to produce ergosta- 5,7,24(28)- trienol. This step is the second to last step in the biosynthetic pathway to ergosterol.
