Example sentences for: isoprenoid

How can you use “isoprenoid” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Further, we were able to demonstrate that α-secretase activity could be modulated by molecules further upstream in the isoprenoid pathway (see Figure 7).

  • The theoretical link between statins and ROCK1 goes as follows: statins inhibit the isoprenoid pathway, isoprenoids are regulators of the enzyme Rho, and Rho in turn activates ROCK1.

  • The isoprenoid pathway involves lipid modification of various members of the Rho family of small GTPases by the addition of either farnesyl or geranylgeranyl moieties [20,42].

  • And while such potential connections could be drawn for any number of molecules, Gandy and colleagues went on to test whether statins exert their effect on APP cleavage by interfering with the isoprenoid/Rho/ROCK1 pathway.

  • Treatment of cells with a farnesyl transferase inhibitor or expression of a dominant negative (DN) ROCK1 molecule led to enhanced sAPP α shedding, supporting the notion that shedding is modulated by the isoprenoid pathway.
