- N-[(R)-pantothenoyl]-L-cysteine pantetheine + CO2
This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the carboxy-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is N-[(R)-pantothenoyl]-L-cysteine carboxy-lyase (pantetheine-forming). Other names in common use include pantothenylcysteine decarboxylase, and N-[(R)-pantothenoyl]-L-cysteine carboxy-lyase. This enzyme participates in pantothenate and coa biosynthesis.
