Bisphosphonates decrease the number of osteoclasts by inhibiting the recruitment and activating apoptosis. Furthermore they inhibit osteoclast activity. Effect on mevalonate pathway p. 45 At the molecular level, the low concentrations necessary for activity suggests some sort of "pocket" which induces a cellular transduction mechanism. This site could be either on the cell membrane or within the cell and might be an enzyme, a pump, or some other intracellular protein involved in the signaling cascade.
