This gene encodes the peroxisomal enzyme mevalonate kinase. Mevalonate is a key intermediate and mevalonate kinase a key early enzyme in isoprenoid and sterol synthesis. Mevalonate kinase deficiency caused by mutation of this gene results in mevalonic aciduria a disease characterized psychomotor retardation failure to thrive hepatosplenomegaly anemia and recurrent febrile crises. Defects in this gene also cause hyperimmunoglobulinaemia D and periodic fever syndrome a disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of fever associated with lymphadenopathy arthralgia gastrointestinal dismay and skin rash. Two transcript variants that encode the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
