Three distinct isoforms of pantothenate kinase (CoaA) in bacteria catalyze the first step in coenzyme A biosynthesis. The structures of the type II (Staphylococcus aureus, SaCoaA) and type III (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, PaCoaA) enzymes reveal that they assemble nearly identical subunits with actin-like folds into dimers that exhibit distinct biochemical… (More)
The preparative and stereoselective synthesis (45- 50% overall yields, >50 g scale) of the key carbasugars 7a-d was achieved from D-ribose via stereoselective Grignard reaction and oxidative rearrangement as key reactions.
