Product Information

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.

In Vitro

NB598 (10 μM) causes a 36±7% reduction in total cholesterol level of MIN6 cells. NB598 causes a significant decrease in cholesterol by 49±2%, 46±7%, and 48±2% from PM, ER, and SG, respectively. NB598 dose-dependently inhibits insulin secretion under both basal (1 mM glucose) and glucose-stimulated (16.7 mM glucose) conditions. NB598 at concentrations up to 10 μM does not affect peak outward KV currents or the voltage dependence of activation but increases current inactivation. NB-598 (10 μM) inhibits the synthesis of sterol and sterol ester from [14C]acetate without affecting the synthesis of other lipids such as phospholipids (PL), free fatty acids (FFA) and triacylglycerol (TG). In the absence of exogenous liposomal cholesterol, NB-598 reduces ACAT activity by 31%. NB-598 reduces ACAT activity by 22% even in the presence of a 600 PM concentration of liposomal cholesterol. NB-598 suppresses the secretion of cholesterol and triacylglycerol from HepG2 cells into the medium.
