CAS#: 136719-25-0 (HCl)

Description: NB-598 is a potent competitive inhibitor of squalene epoxidase (SE). NB-598 suppresses triglyceride biosynthesis through the farnesol pathway. NB-598 suppresses the secretion of cholesterol and triacylglycerol and simultaneously reduces apolipoprotein B in HepG2 cells. NB-598 reduced basolaterally secreted radioactivity in cholesterol, cholesterol ester, PL and TG. Furthermore, NB-598 suppressed the basolateral secretion of apolipoprotein (apo) B. When microsomes prepared from control Caco-2 cells were incubated with 10 microM NB-598, acyl CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) activity was inhibited slightly.
