The reaction mixture is stirred at the same temperature for 2 hours, and the resulting precipitate is collected, washed with water and dried to give 1.32 g of calcium salt as powdery. This compound started to melt at a temperature of 155° C., but the definitive melting point is ambiguous.

Biological Activity Experiment The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitory effect

(1) Preparation of rat liver microsome

Sprague-Dawley rats, which were in free access to ordinary dietes containing 2% cholestyramine and water for 2 weeks, were used for the preparation of rat liver microsome. The thus obtained microsome was the purified according to the manner by Juroda et al., Biochem. Biophys. Act, 486, 70 (1977). The microsomal fraction obtained by centrifugation at 105,000×g was washed once with a buffered solution containing 15 mM nicotinamide and 2 mM magnesium chloride (in a 100 mM potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7.4). It was homogenized with a buffer containing nicotinamide and magnesium chloride at the same weight as the liver employed. The thus obtained homogenate was cooled down and kept at −80° C.

(2) Measurement of the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitory activities

The rat liver microsome sample (100 μl), which was preserved at −80° C., was fused at 0° C. and diluted with 0.7 ml of a cold potassium phosphate buffer (100 mM, pH7.4). This was mixed with 0.8 ml of 50 mM EDTA (buffered with the aforementioned potassium phosphate buffer) and 0.4 ml of 100 mM dithiothreitol solution (buffered with the aforementioned potassium phosphate buffer), and the mixture was kept at 0° C. The microsome solution (1.675 ml) was mixed with 670 μl of 25 mM NADPH (buffered with the aformentioned potassium phosphate buffer), and the solution was added to the solution of 0.5 mM [3−14](HMG-CoA (3mCi/mmol). A solution (5 μl) of sodium salt of the test compound dissolved in potassium phosphate buffer is added to 45 μl of the mixture. The resulting mixture was incubated at 37° C. for 30 minutes and cooled. After termination of the reaction by addition of 10 μl of 2N·HCl, the mixture was incubated again at 37° C. for 15 minutes and then 30 μl of this mixture was applied to thin-layer chromatography of silica gel of 0.5 mm in thickness (Merck AG, Art 5744). The chromatograms were developed in toluene/acetone (1/1) and the spot, whose Rf value was between 0.45 to 0.60, were scraped. The obtained products were put into a vial containing 10 ml of scintillator to measure specific radio-activity with scintillation counter. The activities of the present compounds are shown in Table 4 as comparative ones based on the assumption that the activity of Mevinolin (sodium salt) as reference drug is 100.
