Acyl-Coenzyme A: cholesterol acyltransferase-1 and -2 (ACAT-1 and ACAT-2) catalyze the formation of cholesterol esters from cholesterol and long chain fatty acyl-coenzyme A, and may play a role in the development of atherosclerosis.1,2 CAY10486 inhibits human ACAT-1 and ACAT-2 equally with an IC50 value of approximately 60 µM.3 It also inhibits copper-mediated oxidation of low density lipoproteins by about 28% at a concentration of 3 µM.3
