General description

Alkaline hydrolysis of mevalonolactone gives mevalonate. Mevalonate is a precursor of farnesyl and geranylgeranyl pyrophosphates. These pyrophosphates are required for protein prenylation.

Application

(±)-Mevalonolactone is used to:
  • study the effect of statin on the prenylation of Ras and Rho GTPases
  • analyse the isoprenoid biosynthesis pathways in Listeria monocytogenes
  • study the the effects of statins on proliferation and migration of HUVECs (HGF-induced human umbilical vein endothelial cells)

Biosynthesis of cholesterol generally takes place in the endoplasmic reticulum of hepatic cells and begins with acetyl- CoA, which is mainly derived from an oxidation reaction in the mitochondria. Acetyl-CoA and acetoacetyl-CoA are converted to 3-hydroxy- 3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) by HMG-CoA synthase.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
