EC 4.1.1.99     
Accepted name: phosphomevalonate decarboxylase
Reaction: ATP + (R)-5-phosphomevalonate = ADP + phosphate + isopentenyl phosphate + CO2
For diagram of the archaeal mevalonate pathway, click here
Systematic name: ATP:(R)-5-phosphomevalonate carboxy-lyase (adding ATP; isopentenyl-phosphate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme participates in a mevalonate pathway that occurs in archaea other than the extreme acidophiles of the Thermoplasmatales order. cf. EC 4.1.1.110, bisphosphomevalonate decarboxylase.
