Biological Activity

Synthetic inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase (Ki = 1.7 nM). Lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. Displays minimal metabolism by cytochrome P450 enzymes, with little involvement of CYP3A4. Shown to improve cardiac function and survival in a rat model of hypertensive heart failure.

Compound Libraries

Pitavastatin calcium is also offered as part of the Tocriscreen Plus and Tocriscreen Library of FDA-Approved Compounds. Find out more about compound libraries available from Tocris.
