Background: PANK2

The pantothenate kinase (PANK) gene family contains four members and encode five functional isoforms. The PANK enzymes are key to the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA) (1,2). CoA is used by around 4% of intracellular enzymes as a co-substrate. PANK2, the only member of the PANK family that resides in mitochondria, is feedback regulated by CoA and may be the master regulator of CoA synthesis (3, 4). Mutations in PANK2 results in Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder caused by excessive brain iron accumulation due to the defects in CoA synthesis (1,5). The activity of this enzyme has been measured with a phosphatase-coupled method (6).
