- (R)-mevalonate + CoA + 2 NADP+ (S)-3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA + 2 NADPH + 2 H+
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, to be specific those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. This enzyme participates in biosynthesis of steroids including cholesterol. The statin class of anticholesterol drugs act through inhibiting this enzyme.
The systematic name of this enzyme class is (R)-mevalonate:NADP+ oxidoreductase (CoA-acylating). Other names in common use include:
- hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (reduced nicotinamide
- adenine dinucleotide phosphate), 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase
- β-hydroxy-β-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase
- hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA reductase (NADPH)
- S-3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase
- NADPH-hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase
- HMGCoA reductase-mevalonate:NADP-oxidoreductase (acetylating-CoA)
- 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA reductase (NADPH)
- hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase (NADPH2).
