The mevalonate pathway is prevalent in eukaryotes, archaea, and a limited number of bacteria. This pathway yields the fundamental precursors for isoprenoid biosynthesis, i.e., isopentenyl diphosphate and dimethylally diphosphate. In the downstream part of the general eukaryote-type mevalonate pathway, mevalonate is converted into isopentenyl diphosphate by the sequential actions of mevalonate kinase, phosphomevalonate kinase, and diphosphomevalonte decarboxylase, while a partial lack of the… CONTINUE READING
