25630225 These results are consistent with the previously proposed hypothesis that the allosteric pocket of human FPPS, located near the active site, plays a feed-back regulatory role for this enzyme.
24927548 The results identify new classes of FPPS inhibitors, diterpenoids and sesquiterpenoids, that bind to the IPP site and may be of interest as anticancer and antiinfective drug leads.
24598914 A co-crystal structure of human farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase in complex with a bisphosphonate and two molecules of inorganic phosphate.
24534219 our study indicated that DR patients have higher VEGF levels than diabetic patients without retinopathy, and -2578A/C (rs699947) and +405C/G (rs2010963) may be important factors in determining serum VEGF levels.
24369118 These observations suggest that an increase in the expression of endogenous FPPS could confer at least partial resistance to the pharmacological effect of N-BP drugs such as ZOL in vivo
24311107 Results suggest that polymorphisms of the FDPS gene may influence the bone response to drugs targeting the mevalonate pathway, like statins.
23998921 Data indicate compounds represent a new structural class of farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase (hFPPS) inhibitors and suggest a development of therapeutics.
23847096 The iPA-driven modulation of FDPS can cause an enhancement of post-translational prenylation essential for the biological activity of key proteins in NK signaling and effector functions, such as Ras.
23277274 FPPS might play an important role in Ang II-induced cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis in vivo, at least in part through RhoA, p-38 MAPK and TGF-beta1.
23238007 LRP5 and FDPS loci age-specifically affect skeletal traits in healthy fertile women.
