3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase activity in cultured fibroblasts from patients with mevalonate kinase deficiency: differential response to lipid supplied by fetal bovine serum in tissue culture medium.

Abstract

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase activity was measured in extracts of cultured fibroblasts derived from patients with mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD). For six patients studied, the mean activity of 63.3 +/- 41.1 pmol/min-mg protein (+/- 1 SD, range 37.7-146.2) was significantly higher than the mean value in three control… (More)
