EC 6.3.2.44     
Accepted name: pantoate—β-alanine ligase (ADP-forming)
Reaction: ATP + (R)-pantoate + β-alanine = ADP + phosphate + (R)-pantothenate

Glossary: (R)-pantoate = (2R)-2,4-dihydroxy-3,3-dimethylbutanoate
(R)-pantothenate = 3-[(2R)-2,4-dihydroxy-3,3-dimethylbutanamido]propanoate
Other name(s): pantothenate synthetase (ambiguous); pantoate—β-alanine ligase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: (R)-pantoate:β-alanine ligase (ADP-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the archaeon Methanosarcina mazei, is involved in the biosynthesis of pantothenate. It is different from EC 6.3.2.1, the AMP-forming pantoate-β-alanine ligase found in bacteria and eukaryota.
