Gene: Mvk (mevalonate kinase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mvk
Name: mevalonate kinase
RGD ID: 621295
Description: Enables several functions, including ATP binding activity; magnesium ion binding activity; and mevalonate kinase activity. Involved in isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, mevalonate pathway and negative regulation of translation. Located in cytosol and peroxisome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lipid metabolism disorder; mevalonic aciduria; and porokeratosis. Orthologous to human MVK (mevalonate kinase); PARTICIPATES IN alendronate pharmacodynamics pathway; cholesterol biosynthetic pathway; cholesterol ester storage disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; 1-[(4-chlorophenyl)-phenylmethyl]-4-methylpiperazine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
