Abstract

A ruthenium(ii) p-cymene derivative of quercetin was synthesized and functionally tested for cholesterol-lowering ability via direct 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGR) inhibition. Ruthenium complexation dramatically increased the inhibition potency of the parent quercetin toward HMGR, with a consequent enhancement of the cholesterol-lowering effect in hepatic cells.
