The human enzyme hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) limits the rate of cholesterol synthesis, a necessary process for cellular growth, in liver tissue. Phosphorylation of HMGCR inactivates the enzyme, which occurs via a negative feedback mechanism mediated by sterols and non-sterol metabolites derived from the product of the reductase reaction. Inhibitors of HMGCR (statins) exert anti-inflammatory effects and decrease the frequency of cardiovascular events by lowering plasma cholesterol. Additionally, intermediate products along the pathway catalyzed by HMGCR, which modulate signal transducing proteins such as Ras, provide possible ties between HMGCR regulation and new chemotherapeutic methods.
