Product Overview:
A potent, competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase (Ki = 0.6 nM)
Hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase is the rate-limiting enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway and the target of the “statin” class of cholesterol-lowering drugs. Lovastatin is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor that was initially isolated from Aspergillus terreus. Marketed as Mevinolin™, Mevacor™, and under several other trade names, Lovastatin was the first HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor to be used in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. It is a competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase with a Ki value of 0.6 nM for the open ring, hydroxy acid form of the molecule. During a three week study in dogs, a dose of 8 mg/kg per day resulted in a 29% reduction in plasma cholesterol. Lovastatin also suppresses TNF-induced NF-κB activation (IC50 ~ 15 µM), which potentiates apoptosis in human myeloid leukemia cells and thus, maybe useful in treating cancer.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
