Gene Information

human ... HMGCR(3156)

General description

The 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGCR) codes for a part of the statin-binding domain of the enzyme. This gene is located on human chromosome 5q13. HMGCR has a molecular mass of 97 kDa and is mainly localized to smooth endoplasmic reticulum. The encoded protein is predominantly expressed in liver tissues.

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to an internal sequence of human HMGCR, conjugated to KLH. The corresponding sequence is identical in human HMGCR isoform 2 and has 87% sequence identity in mouse HMGCR and 81% identity in rat HMGCR.

Application

Anti-HMGCR antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGCR) plays a major role in mevalonate biosynthesis, which is a rate limiting step of cholesterol biosynthesis in the liver. Additionally, it also plays a key role in various biological process such as, embryogenesis and cancer. Elevated expression of the gene is associated with the development of gastric cancer(GC) and glioblastoma cells. Thus, HMGCR can be considered as a potent therapeutic target for GC and glioblastoma. Polymorphism in HMGCR results in late-onset Alzheimer′s disease.
