    Abstract : Solute carriers (SLCs) comprise the largest group of transporters in humans and there are currently 52 SLC families. They are embedded in cellular membranes and transport numerous molecules; defects in many of the genes encoding SLCs have been connected to pathological conditions, and several SLCs are potential drug targets.

    Abstract : Mevalonate (MVA) is the key intermediate in the isoprene synthetic pathway leading to the formation of a number of biologically important lipid molecules. It is well known that inhibition of MVA synthesis blocks the cell cycle progression of mammalian cells, a fact suggesting that some isoprenoids derived from MVA are required for cell proliferation.
