  • The concentration of lanosterol slightly increases (f) and that of desmosterol significantly increases (g) in the brains of fluvastatin-treated 129.Mecp2tm1.1Bird/Y mice at P70 (n = 4 mice per group; P = 0.042). *P ≤ 0.05 determined using Dunnett’s post-hoc test to compare statin- with vehicle-treated groups. All error bars represent the s.e.m.

  • (d) Fluvastatin treatment does not significantly change serum cholesterol concentrations at 8 months of age. (e) Fluvastatin treatment ameliorates elevated lipid concentrations in 129.Mecp2tm1.1Bird/+ livers assessed at 8 months of age (*P = 0.045). One-way ANOVA was used for the data analyses . *P ≤ 0.05 determined using Dunnett’s post-hoc test to compare statin- with vehicle-treated groups. All error bars represent the s.e.m.

  • Mevalonate and geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate reversed fluvastatin-mediated inhibition of proliferation. YT-INDY was incubated for up to 72 hours in the presence of fluvastatin (50 uM) or the solvents in which the drugs were dissolved. The statins or vehicles were added at the start of the experiment. Some statin-treated flasks also received mevalonate (1 mM) or geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) (10 uM). Cell counts were performed on each flask at 24 hour intervals. Each experiment was performed three times and the data was analyzed for statistical significance by Student's t-test. Statistical significance is denoted by asterisks. *: p < 0.05, ***: p < 0.001.

  • C, Western blot showing that the addition of mevalonate or GGPP rescues the effect of fluvastatin on GTPase isoprenylation by blocking the appearance of unprenylated Rap1a. α-Tubulin serves as a loading control.

Biological Activity

Description Fluvastatin Sodium inhibits HMG-CoA reductase activity with IC50 of 8 nM in a cell-free assay.
Features The order of magnitude of inhibition of each drug on the peroxidation was butylated hydroxytoluene > fluvastatin ≥ probucol ≥ pravastatin.
HMG-CoA reductase [1]
(Cell-free assay)
8 nM
In vitro

Fluvastatin markedly inhibits the formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances in iron (II)-supported peroxidation of liposomes with IC50 of 12 μM. Fluvastatin ranging from 1 μM to 100 μM inhibits peroxyl radical-mediated peroxidation of liposomes induced by water-soluble and lipid-soluble radical generators, 2,2'-azobis (2-amidinopropane) dihydro-chloride and 2,2'-azobis (2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile), respectively. [2] Fluvastatin (4 mM) and its metabolites shows superoxide anion scavenging activity in the hypoxanthine-xanthine oxidase system and a strong scavenging effect on the hydroxyl radical produced from Fenton's reaction. Fluvastatin (8 μM) and its metabolites shows protective effects on DNA damage as potent as the reference antioxidants, ascorbic acid, trolox, and probucol in CHL/IU cells. [3] Fluvastatin (100 nM) shows a dose-dependent decrease in Ang II-activated superoxide anion formation in human aortic smooth muscle cells (hASMC). [4]

In vivo Fluvastatin (10 mg/kg/day) results in a decrease in serum lipids in rabbits feed a 1.5% cholesterol containing diet. Fluvastatin (10 mg/kg/day) significantly lowers the tissue ACE in the aortae in rabbits feed a 1.5% cholesterol containing diet. Fluvastatin (10 mg/kg/day) significantly reverses the suppression of ACh-induced relaxation in rabbits feed a 1.5% cholesterol containing diet. [5]

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
