Dephospho-coenzyme A kinase (DPCK) (EC 18.104.22.168) catalyzes the final step in coenzyme A (CoA) biosynthesis, the phosphorylation of the 3'-hydroxyl group of ribose using ATP as a phosphate donor. DPCK is present in a wide range of organisms, including bacteria, fungi, plants and animals. Whereas bacterial DPCK is found in stand-alone form, mammalian DPCK is associated with another enzyme of the CoA biosynthetic pathway, phosphopantetheine adenylyltransferase (PPAT) (EC 22.214.171.124), in bifunctional coenzyme A synthase (CoA synthase) [1,2].
The DPCK domain contains an ATP/GTP-binding Walker A motif (P-loop) (see <PDOC00017>) in its N-terminal extremity. It is structurally similar to many nucleoside kinases and other P-loop-containing nucleotide triphosphate hydrolases, despite having negligible sequence similarity to these enzymes. The DPCK domain consists of five parallel β-strands flanked by α-helices (see <PDB:1JJV>) [1,2].
The profile we developed covers the entire DPCK domain.Last update:
