Drugs used in diabetes
- Lovastatin is a statin, a family of lipid-lowering drugs.
- White or very pale yellow crystal powder.
- It's an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase, an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate. Mevalonate is a required building block for cholesterol biosynthesis and lovastatin interferes with its production by acting as a reversible competitive inhibitor for HMG-CoA, which binds to the HMG-CoA reductase.
