The incorporation of mevalonolactone and potassium mevalonate into lipid fractions of liver and brain has been evaluated. Brain slices have been shown to incorporate potassium mevalonate to a greater extent than mevalonolactone into unsaponifiable and digitonin-precipitable material. In brain homogenates similar data have been obtained. In liver this effect has not been observed. Results are discussed.
