FunctionBifunctional enzyme that catalyzes the fourth and fifth sequential steps of CoA biosynthetic pathway. The fourth reaction is catalyzed by the phosphopantetheine adenylyltransferase, coded by the coaD domain; the fifth reaction is catalyzed by the dephospho-CoA kinase, coded by the coaE domain. May act as a point of CoA biosynthesis regulation.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues examined including brain, heart, skeletal muscle, colon, thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, small intestine, placenta, lung and peripheral blood leukocyte. Lowest expression in peripheral blood leukocytes and highest in kidney and liver. Isoform 2 is expressed mainly in the brain.
PathwayCofactor biosynthesis; coenzyme A biosynthesis; CoA from (R)-pantothenate: step 4/5. Cofactor biosynthesis; coenzyme A biosynthesis; CoA from (R)-pantothenate: step 5/5.
Sequence similaritiesIn the central section; belongs to the eukaryotic coaD family. Contains 1 DPCK (dephospho-CoA kinase) domain.
