PanM, an Acetyl-Coenzyme A Sensor Required for Maturation of l-Aspartate Decarboxylase (PanD)

Abstract

UNLABELLED Coenzyme A (CoA) is essential for cellular chemistry in all forms of life. The pantothenate moiety of CoA is generated from the condensation of pantoate and β-alanine. β-Alanine is formed by decarboxylation of l-aspartate catalyzed by PanD, a pyruvoyl enzyme that is synthesized by the cell as an inactive precursor (pro-PanD). Maturation of pro… (More)
