Gene Name: 
3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase

( Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) reductase

Protein Function :
Catalyzes the conversion of (3S)-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) to mevalonic acid, the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of cholesterol and other isoprenoids, thus plays a critical role in ce...[+]
