    basic FUNCTION
  • catalyzing an early step in the mevalonate pathway (conversion of murelonate into 5-phosphomevalonate) for the synthesis of isoprenoids and cholesterol
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism lipid/lipoprotein
    signaling
    a component
  • a structural constituent of membranes and precursor for bile acids and steroid hormones
  • homodimeric enzyme
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • MVK is a LH receptor mRNA binding protein regulating LH receptor activity in ovary
  • binds to the coding region of LHCGR mRNA, suppresses its translation, and the resulting ribonucleoprotein complex is targeted for degradation
  • by inhibiting EIF5A hypusination, FSH reduces the expression of MVK that increases LHCGR mRNA expression by abrogating the inhibitory action of MVK
