Investigations on the mechanism of the hypocholesterolemic action of 1-ethoxysilatrane
It is concluded that the hypocholesterolemic action of the compound rested entirely on the inhibition of cholesterol biosynthesis in vivo by inactivation of the rate-limiting enzyme HMGCoA reductase.
Mevalonate-metabolizing enzymes in Arachis hypogaea
Results suggest that regulation of isoprene pathway in groundnut seedlings may occur at the level of mevalonate decarboxylation.
Hypocholesterolemic action of 1-ethoxysilatrane.
Intraperitoneal administration of the organosilicon compound 1-ethoxysilatrane to the rat caused a 25% decrease in the concentration of cholesterol in serum without affecting that of

Iron in the free ionic state is very reactive as it generates and reacts with free radicals of the type HO, LO, LOO', O−2 and C, which do not occur in normal cells as they are kept under check by antioxidant devices, and more importantly by keeping free iron concentration low.
Polychlorinated biphenyls interfere with the regulation of hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase activity in rat liver via enzyme-lipid interaction and at the transcriptional level.

The data suggest that polychlorinated biphenyls act on the regulation of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductase activity by enzyme-lipid interaction and at the transcriptional level.
Purification and characterization of fermodulin, an Fe2+-dependent inhibitor protein of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase.
The activity of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMGCoA) reductase of rat liver microsomes was inhibited by the addition of FeSO4 and the cytosolic protein, fermodulin, which showed ultraviolet absorption and fluorescence spectra typical of tryptophan-containing proteins.
