Intraperitoneal administration of the organosilicon compound 1-ethoxysilatrane to the rat caused a 25% decrease in the concentration of cholesterol in serum without affecting that of triacylglycerols. The specific activity of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA reductase, the rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis, was depressed in hepatic microsomes of silatrane-treated animals.
