3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA synthase 2
Mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA synthase (HMGCS2; EC 18.104.22.168) mediates the first reaction of ketogenesis, a metabolic pathway that provides lipid-derived energy for brain, heart, kidney, and other organs during times of carbohydrate deprivation such as fasting (Robinson and Williamson, 1980 [PubMed 6986618]). Also see cytoplasmic HMG-CoA synthase (HMGCS1; MIM 142940), which mediates an early step in cholesterol synthesis.[supplied by OMIM]
