mevalonate pathway

General Background In humans, this pathway leads to : PWY66-341, : PWY-6061 and all steroid biosynthesis pathways via the formation of : FARNESYL-PP (FPP). The : DELTA3-ISOPENTENYL-PP (IPP) from this pathway is also used to synthesize cytosolic : GERANYLGERANYL-PP (GGPP) which is used along with FPP for the prenylation of proteins. About This Pathway The biosynthesis of : DELTA3-ISOPENTENYL-PP (IPP) occurs from the condensation of three : ACETYL-COA molecules.
