3 hydroxy 3 methylglutaryl Coenzyme A synthase 2 (mitochondrial)
3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A synthase
HMG CoA synthase
Hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA synthase
Hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA synthase mitochondrial
FunctionThis enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase.
Tissue specificityHigh expression in liver and colon. Low expression in testis, heart, skeletal muscle and kidney.
PathwayMetabolic intermediate biosynthesis; (R)-mevalonate biosynthesis; (R)-mevalonate from acetyl-CoA: step 2/3.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in HMGCS2 are the cause of HMG-CoA synthase deficiency (HMGCS deficiency) [MIM:605911]; also known as deficiency of mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2. Affected individuals present with severe hypoketotic hypoglycemia, mild hepatomegaly, or fatty liver, and a nondiagnostic pattern of urinary organic acids with increase of medium and short chain dicarboxylic acids.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the HMG-CoA synthase family.
