Background of PMVK/phosphomevalonate kinase

PMVK (phosphomevalonate kinase) is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of mevalonate-5-phosphate to mevalonate-5-diphosphate. It is mapped to chromosome 1p13-1q22-23 and spans more than 8.4 kb in the human genome. PMVK is a peroxisomal protein which requires the C-terminal peroxisomal targeting signal, Ser-Arg-Leu, for localization to the organelle. It was expressed highly in heart, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas and slightly lower in brain, placenta, and lung. And PMKase gene expression is subject to regulation by sterol at the level of transcription. It is a single copy gene covering less than 15 kb in the human genome. The human PMKase amino acid sequence contains a consensus peroxisomal targeting sequence (PTS-1), Ser-Arg-Leu, at the C terminus of the protein.

4 Customer Q&As for Anti-Phosphomevalonate kinase PMVK Antibody


Can you help my question with product PA1067, anti-PMVK antibody. I was wondering if it would be possible to conjugate this antibody with biotin. I would need it to be without BSA or sodium azide. I am planning on using a buffer exchange of sodium azide with PBS only. Would there be problems for me to conjugate the antibody and store it in -20 degrees in small aliquots?

It is not recommended storing this antibody with PBS buffer only in -20 degrees. If you want to store it in -20 degrees it is best to add some cryoprotectant like glycerol. If you want carrier free PA1067 anti-PMVK antibody, we can provide it to you in a special formula with trehalose and/or glycerol. These molecules will not interfere with conjugation chemistry and provide a good level of protection for the antibody from degradation. Please be sure to specify this in your purchase order.

We are currently using anti-PMVK antibody PA1067 for mouse tissue, and we are satisfied with the IHC results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, mouse, rat. Is it true that the antibody can work on horse tissues as well?

Verified Customer

Asked: 2019-08-16


The anti-PMVK antibody (PA1067) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with horse tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in horse you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.

Would PA1067 anti-PMVK antibody work on parafin embedded sections? If so, which fixation method do you recommend we use (PFA, paraformaldehyde, other)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-06-28


As indicated on the product datasheet, PA1067 anti-PMVK antibody as been validated on WB. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
