Basic Information

Enzyme Number

Official Name

pantothenate kinase

Name from literature

pantothenate kinase

Pathway from literature

coenzyme A ( CoA ) biosynthetic pathway

Pathway from KEGG

Metabolism of Cofactors and Vitamins; Pantothenate and CoA biosynthesis; map00770


Yeast (4932)

Genome localization

-[852144 ],

Rate-limiting Description

"The acetyl-CoA levels also increased ( approximately 5-fold) but not as much as that of CoA, showing that the carbon flux from the pyruvate node is rate-limiting upon an increase in CoA levels." (15176870)

"Fms1 is a rate-limiting enzyme for the biosynthesis of pantothenic acid in yeast." (15843025)
