Interaction Information:

Comment Treatment of MCF-7 cells with mevastatin alone resulted in a 10- to 15-fold induction of HMG-CoA reductase activity in association with a 2.5- to 3.5-fold induction of HMG-CoA reductase mRNA expression. Genistein significantly abrogated the induction of reductase, the activity of which was 40% lower in cells treated concomitantly with genistein and mevastatin compared to cells treated with mevastatin alone. Reductase mRNA, measured by real-time PCR, was unchanged by genistein in mevastatin-treated cells. This indicates that down-regulation of reductase activity by genistein in these cells was mediated entirely through post-transcriptional events.

Comment DHA also significantly attenuated the induction of HMG-CoA reductase activity by mevastatin in MCF-7 cells. Reductase activity was 15% lower in cells treated concomitantly with DHA and mevastatin, compared to cells treated with mevastatin alone. The magnitude of this down-regulation, however, was smaller than that observed in cells grown in the absence of mevastatin, in which DHA produced an 30% reduction in HMG-CoA reductase activity. DHA caused no change in reductase mRNA in mevastatin-treated cells, indicating that regulation of reductase activity by DHA was mediated entirely at a post-transcriptional level. Unlike DHA or genistein, EPA produced no change in HMG-CoA reductase in mevastatin-treated cells.
