Abstract

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.
