Gene: Mvk (mevalonate kinase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mvk
Name: mevalonate kinase
Description: Exhibits mevalonate kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cholesterol biosynthetic process; isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, mevalonate pathway; and negative regulation of translation. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and peroxisome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lipid metabolism disorder; mevalonic aciduria; and porokeratosis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human MVK (mevalonate kinase).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
