- N-[(R)-4'-phosphopantothenoyl]-L-cysteine pantotheine 4'-phosphate + CO2
This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, to be specific the carboxy-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is N-[(R)-4'-phosphopantothenoyl]-L-cysteine carboxy-lyase (pantotheine-4'-phosphate-forming). Other names in common use include 4-phosphopantotheoylcysteine decarboxylase, 4-phosphopantothenoyl-L-cysteine decarboxylase, PPC-decarboxylase, and N-[(R)-4'-phosphopantothenoyl]-L-cysteine carboxy-lyase. This enzyme participates in coenzyme A (CoA) biosynthesis from pantothenic acid.
