Whereas the major hydroxylation product of 3β-hydroxy-5α-androstan-17-one by Cephalosporium aphidicola is the 11α-alcohol, the presence of a Δ5-double bond in the substrate leads to non-stereospecific allylic hydroxylation at C–7. Hydroxylation at C–11 became a minor transformation and there was no detectable hydroxylation at C–14.
