Tissue-selective inhibition of cholesterol synthesis in vivo by pravastatin sodium, a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor.
Tissue selectivity of pravastatin sodium (pravastatin) in inhibition of cholesterol synthesis was investigated and its effect was compared with other 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductaseExpand

Mechanism for elevation of hepatic cholesterol synthesis and serum cholesterol levels in triton WR-1339-induced hyperlipidemia.
Abstract 1. 1. During the first 3 h after the intravenous injection of Triton (WR-1339) to rats at a dose of 400 mg/kg (first phase), a 2-fold increase in serum cholesterol levels was accompanied byExpand

The mechanism of lack of hypocholesterolemic effects of pravastatin sodium, a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor, in rats.
In order to clarify the reason why pravastatin, a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl (HMG)-CoA reductase inhibitor, did not show hypocholesterolemic effects in rats, the changes of various parametersExpand
