The inhibition of the mevalonate pathway through genetic defects such as mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD) or pharmacological drugs such as aminobisphosphonates causes a shortage of intermediate compounds, in particular geranylgeranyl-pyrophosphate (GGPP), which is associated with the consequent augmented IL-1β release in monocytes. Considering that, due to its biochemical structure, isoprenoid geraniol enters the mevalonate pathway and may revert the genetic or pharmacological inhibition, the present study tested isoprenoid geraniol in cellular and animal MKD models obtained through the use of aminobisphosphonate pamidronate.

Abstract

The inhibition of the mevalonate pathway through genetic defects such as mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD) or pharmacological drugs such as aminobisphosphonates causes a shortage of intermediate compounds, in particular geranylgeranyl-pyrophosphate (GGPP), which is associated with the consequent augmented IL-1β release in monocytes. Considering that, due to its biochemical structure, isoprenoid geraniol enters the mevalonate pathway and may revert the genetic or pharmacological inhibition, the present study tested isoprenoid geraniol in cellular and animal MKD models obtained through the use of aminobisphosphonate pamidronate.
