(d)The methyl groups that are lost are the methyl substituents at C-2 and C-10 plus the methylgroup that is C-1 of squalene 2,3-epoxide.26.13Tracking the 14C label of 14CH3CO2H through the complete biosynthesis of cholesterol requires asystematic approach. First, by analogy with Problem 26.11, we can determine the distribution of 14C(denoted by *) in squalene 2,3-epoxide.Next, follow the path of the
