Lathosterol oxidase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the SC5DL gene.

This gene encodes an enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis. The encoded protein catalyzes the conversion of lathosterol into 7-dehydrocholesterol. Mutations in this gene have been associated with lathosterolosis. Alternative spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described.
