Chemical Name: P,P'-(4-Amino-1-hydroxybutylidene)bis-phosphonic acid monosodium salt
Biological ActivityOsteoclast-mediated bone resorption inhibitor. Binds and blocks farnesyl diphosphate synthase (FPPS) in the HMG-CoA pathway (IC50 = 460 nM for recombinant human FPPS); causes macrophage apoptosis. Inhibits prenylation and sterol biosynthesis in purified osteoclasts.
