   I did some research work on the mevalonate pathway regulation in B16 
melanoma cells. Now I need to find an inhibitor that is specific for 
prenyl alcohol(farnesol or/and geraniol) dehydrogenase. This inhibitor 
should be permeable to the cell. Is there anyone know that if phenobarbital 
( an inducer of P450 monooxygenase ) is permeable to the cell membrane?
