We also demonstrated that aspects of this inhibition, for example, protein isoprenylation and geranylation, could be reversed by replenishment of depleted isoprene precursors [7].
In in vitro studies of inhibition by DHEA of protein geranylation and farnesylation (together referred to as protein isoprenylation), we had demonstrated that the block to protein isoprenylation could be relieved by the addition of the isoprene donor geraniol [6, 7].
