Gene: HMGCS2 (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HMGCS2
Name: 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2
CRRD ID: 737571
Description: Exhibits hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in acetyl-CoA metabolic process and ketone body biosynthetic process. Localizes to mitochondrion. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A synthase; 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2 (mitochondrial); 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-Coenzyme A synthase 2 (mitochondrial); HMG-CoA synthase; hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, mitochondrial; mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase; testicular tissue protein Li 88
