Ozone directly converts cholesterol 41 to the secosterol aldehyde 49 (secosterol A), which undergoes some conversion to its aldolization product 50 (secosterol B) [61].
The fact that secosterol A is the predominant secosterol in human tissues [61, 62, 100] indicates a much greater role for ozone than singlet oxygen in the in vivo formation of the secosterols because even the secosterol B detected in such systems is at least partly formed by aldolization of secosterol A.
