3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-Coenzyme A synthase 2 (mitochondrial)
|Locus||Chr. 1 p13-p12|
HMG-CoA synthase is an enzyme which catalyzes the reaction where Acetyl-CoA condenses with acetoacetyl-CoA to form 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA). There are two different forms of the enzyme; in humans the cytosolic form has only 60.6% amino acid identity with the mitochondrial from of the enzyme.
The cytosolic enzymes has a key role in the production of cholesterol and other isoprenoids:
The mitochondrial form is used for the production of ketone bodies:
The gene for the mitochondrial form of the enzyme has three sterol regulatory elements in the 5' flanking region . These elements are responsible for decreased transcription of the message responsible for enzyme synthesis when dietary cholesterol is high in animals: the same is observed for 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA and the low density lipoprotein receptor.
