InterPro : IPR006206

Name  Mevalonate/galactokinase Short Name  Mevalonate/galactokinase
Type  Family Description  Mevalonate kinase () and galactokinases () belong to this family. Mevalonate kinase may be a regulatory site in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. It is also involved in mevalonate catabolism. Galactokinase takes part in the first reaction of galactose metabolism by converting galactose to galactose-1-phosphate.
