CommentThis enzyme, also called squalene--tetrahymanol cyclase, occurs a small number of eukaryotes, some of them anaerobic. The pathway can occur under anaerobic conditions, and the product is thought to replace sterols, letting organisms with this compound build membrane suitable for performing phagocytosis.
