2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid inhibited the incorporation of [2-(14)C]mevalonate into cholesterol and non-saponifiable lipids. Both compounds inhibited the conversion of [1-(14)C]isopentenyl pyrophosphate into cholesterol and the synthesis of cholesterol and fatty acids from [2-(14)C]acetate. There was no inhibition of the conversion of [1-(14)C]mevalonate into CO(2). At low concentrations (0.5mm) of the compounds there was a stimulation of acetate incorporation into fatty acids.
