Gene: MVD (mevalonate diphosphate decarboxylase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MVD
Name: mevalonate diphosphate decarboxylase
Description: Exhibits Hsp70 protein binding activity; diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in isoprenoid biosynthetic process and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to cytosol. Implicated in porokeratosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase; FP17780; MDDase; mevalonate (diphospho) decarboxylase; mevalonate pyrophosphate decarboxylase; MPD; POROK7
