HMG-CoA reductase (3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-CoA reductase or HMGR) (EC 184.108.40.206) is a transmembrane protein involved in the mevalonate pathway, the metabolic pathway that produces cholesterol from acetyl-CoA. In an NADPH-dependent reaction, HMG-CoA reductase reduces HMG-CoA to generate mevalonate and CoA. Since HMG-CoA reductase catalyzes the rate limiting step in cholesterol synthesis, it is a primary target of a group of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. Inhibition of HMG-CoA reductase induces expression of LDL receptors in the liver, which lowers plasma concentration of cholesterol.
