DESCRIPTION
Also known as MVK_PYRHO, mvk. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of (R)-mevalonate (MVA) to (R)-mevalonate 5-phosphate (MVAP). Functions in the mevalonate (MVA) pathway leading to isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP), a key precursor for the biosynthesis of isoprenoid compounds such as archaeal membrane lipids. Homodimer.
