BackgroundPhosphomevalonate kinase (PMVK) is a cytosolic enzyme. PMVK can be highly expressed in the heart,skeletal muscle, liver, pancreas, and kidney; it is expressed at lower levels in the brain, lung, and placenta. Induced by sterol, PMVK takes part in isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthesis through the mevalonate pathway. PMVK catalyzes the conversion of mevalonate 5-phosphate into mevalonate 5-diphosphate in the fifth reaction of the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway.
