- (R)-pantothenate + H2O (R)-pantoate + beta-alanine
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, those acting on carbon-nitrogen bonds other than peptide bonds, specifically in linear amides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (R)-pantothenate amidohydrolase. Other names in common use include pantothenate hydrolase, and pantothenate amidohydrolase. This enzyme participates in pantothenate and coa biosynthesis.
