InterPro : IPR016005

Name  Phosphomevalonate kinase, ERG8 Short Name  Pmev_kin_ERG8
Type  Family Description  Phosphomevalonate kinase () catalyzes the phosphorylation of 5-phosphomevalonate into 5-diphosphomevalonate,an essential step in isoprenoid biosynthesis via the mevalonate pathway. In an example of nonorthologous gene displacement, two different types of phosphomevalonate kinase are found - the higher eukaryotic form and the ERG8 type []. This model represents plant and fungal forms of the ERG8 type of phosphomevalonate kinase.
