3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A lyase (HL): cloning and characterization of a mouse liver HL cDNA and subchromosomal mapping of the human and mouse HL genes

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A lyase (HL) is a homodimeric mitochondrial matrix enzyme that catalyzes the last step of ketogenesis. Using a human HL cDNA as a probe, we isolated a 1.4-kb mouse HL cDNA (HLM) from a mouse liver library and extended the sequence in the 5′ direction, using RACE PCR to include the complete coding sequence. The nucleotide… CONTINUE READING
