  2. 2. Inhibition of the mevalonate pathway in C. elegans: Consequences and implications

    Author : Parmida Ranji; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Mevalonate pathway; C. elegans; atfs-1; mitochondrial unfolded response UPR ;

    Abstract : The mevalonate pathway in human is responsible for the synthesis of cholesterol and other important biomolecules such as coenzyme Q (a component of the electron transport chain in mitochondria), dolichols (important for N-linked glycosylation of proteins) and isoprenoids (important for the membrane association of small GTPases). This thesis concerns novel findings about the effect of statin on the mevalonate pathway using C. READ MORE

    Abstract : The mevalonate pathway is an important biosynthetic pathway, found in all cells of virtually all known pro- as well as eukaryotic organisms. This thesis is an investigation into the use of two drugs, originally developed for different applications, but both affecting the mevalonate pathway, in to models of fracture repair. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of different secondary metabolites : Natural products from the mevalonate pathway

    Author : Mariela Alejandra Gonzales Ramirez; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
