Description

General description

Rosuvastatin calcium (ROS) has a molecular mass of 1001.14. ROS is a member of the "statins" group and is a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor.

Application

Rosuvastatin calcium has been used to determine the effect of the treatment with SIM, rosuvastatin or PRA on cholesterol and HMGCR levels in HeLa cells and to evaluate the in vivo effects of statins on glucose homeostasis.

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Rosuvastatin calcium is a competitive inhibitor of hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonic acid, the rate-limiting step in cholesterol biosynthesis. Rosuvastatin calcium is antilipemic and is used to reduce plasma cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular disease.
