Pantothenate & CoA Biosynthetic Metabolite Analysis

Online Inquiry


Pantothenate (vitamin B5) is the key precursor for the biosynthesis of CoA, an important cofactor involved in a variety of metabolic reactions including the citrate cycle and fatty acid biosynthesis. Pantothenate synthesis happens in plants, fungi and some bacteria, whereas animals salvage pantothenate from diet. In all living organisms, CoA is synthesized via a five-step process, which requires pantothenate and ATP as well as cysteine. The five-step enzymatic reaction is catalyzed by pantothenic acid kinase, phosphopantetheinylcysteine synthetase, phosphopantetheinylcysteine decarboxylase, phosphopantetheinylmercaptoethylamine adenosyltransferase, and dephosphorylated coenzyme A kinase, in that order. In addition, CoA can be synthesized via alternate routes when intracellular CoA level are reduced and the in vivo pathway is impaired. The aberrant pantothenate and CoA biosynthesis therefore leads to human diseases like neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.

Creative Proteomics utilizes high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) to determine levels of pantothenate and coenzyme a biosynthesis-related metabolites in a variety of samples to accelerate your research project, from disease diagnosis to new insights into disease mechanisms or treatments.
