Annexin A6 (AnxA6), a calcium- and membrane-binding protein, is well-known to play a role in calcium homeostasis, membrane traffic and membrane organization. It had been suggested that, despite calcium-dependent interaction with anionic phospholipids, AnxA6 displays calcium-independent cholesterol binding properties. In

This paper describes the efficient and stereospecific synthesis of cytotoxic dihydroxylated sterols, 24-methylene-cholest-5-ene-3beta,7alpha-diol 1, and its C-7 epimer, 24-methylene-cholest-5-ene-3beta,7beta-diol 2. The crux of the synthesis is that the selective allylic oxidation of 24-methylene-cholesteryl acetate proceeds to 24-methylene-7-keto-cholesteryl acetate without extensive
