pantothenate kinase activity
Catalysis of the reaction: ATP + pantothenate = ADP + D-4'-phosphopantothenate.
Interacting selectively and non-covalently with ATP, adenosine 5'-triphosphate, a universally important coenzyme and enzyme regulator.
coenzyme A biosynthetic process
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of coenzyme A, 3'-phosphoadenosine-(5')diphospho(4')pantatheine, an acyl carrier in many acylation and acyl-transfer reactions in which the intermediate is a thiol ester.
