Pantetheine-phosphate adenylyltransferase

Jump to: navigation, search

In enzymology, a pantetheine-phosphate adenylyltransferase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

ATP + pantetheine 4'-phosphate diphosphate + 3'-dephospho-CoA

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ATP and pantetheine 4'-phosphate, whereas its two products are diphosphate and 3'-dephospho-CoA.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotide groups (nucleotidyltransferases). The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:pantetheine-4'-phosphate adenylyltransferase. Other names in common use include dephospho-CoA pyrophosphorylase, pantetheine phosphate adenylyltransferase, dephospho-coenzyme A pyrophosphorylase, and 3'-dephospho-CoA pyrophosphorylase. This enzyme participates in pantothenate and coa biosynthesis.
