In support of the hypothesis that protein prenylation could be involved in impaired activation of mTORC2, the addition of mevalonate has been shown to partially prevent particular aspects of the toxicity of statins about skeletal muscle cells36. Based on the effects of the current study, the promotion of apoptosis by simvastatin can be explained by three mechanisms. simvastatin caused accumulation of the insulin receptor -chain in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and improved cleavage of procaspase-12, indicating ER stress. Insulin reduced the manifestation of the insulin receptor -chain but improved procaspase-12 activation in the presence of simvastatin. In conclusion, simvastatin impaired activation of Akt Ser473 most likely as a consequence of reduced activity of mTORC2. Insulin could prevent the effects of simvastatin within the insulin signaling pathway and on apoptosis, but not within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress induction. 0.1% DMSO; +P?
