Dimeric 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGCR dimer) catalyzes the four-electron reduction of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylglutaryl-CoA (bHMG-CoA) to mevalonate (MVA). MVA concentrations in the cell are tightly controlled through the activity of HMGCR dimer, which is one of the most highly regulated enzymes in metabolism (Goldstein & Brown 1990).
