The activities of mevalonate(MVA)kinase and phosphomevalonate(MVAP) kinase have been estimated with the appropriate substrates in extracts from green leaves of lemongrass. These enzymes are exclusively cytosolic in location and have a requirement for thiol reagents for showing maximal rates. Both enzymes need Mg2+ for activity and are capable of using ATP, GTP, or CTP. In presence of Mg, metal ions like Fe2+, Cd2+, Zn2+, and Mn2+ have no effect on the activity of MVAP kinase while Mn2+ and Cd2+ increased the activity of MVA kinase.
