Question Question: Fast food lover, chedt pain.

Made a question myself, so... you know... Don't judge too hard, please answer or provide critique!
__________________________________________________ ______
A 60-years old patient has a history of diabethes type 2. He has a history of a disease that is caused by non-enzymatic glycosylation in his vessels. His main complain was pain in his chest while walking up the stairs but now he says that pain happens at rest and interferes with his life. He says: "Doc, I really would like to try this new cheeseburger that they announced for the next spring, fix me please!". After multiple tests that you've done you decide to use radioiologically-guided invasive technique to insert a "tube" into one of the main arteries of this patient's heart. The tube is covered with a chemical agent that works in the specific cycle of the cell. What process does this drug prevent?

1. chemotaxis.
2. apoptosis.
3. assembly.
4. disassembly.
5. differentiatin.
6. aromatzation.
7. glycosylation.
8. acetylization.
9. formation
