D-Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is a water-soluble vitamin and is an essential nutrient to synthesize coenzyme-A, fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

D-Pantothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin. In rabbits, pentothenate (20 mg/kg) significantly increased aponeurosis strength after surgery and improved the strength of the skin. Also, pentothenate significantly increased the fibroblast content of the scar during the fibroblast proliferation phase [1]. Pantothenic acid deficiency increased occurrence of hypertension due to adrenal regeneration [2]. In rabbits, cerebellar and forebrain slices were able to accumulate and phosphorylate pantothenic acid. However, medium-chain fatty acids, probenecid and ouabain inhibited pantothenic acid accumulation by forebrain slices and inhibited conversion to CoA [3]. In ICR mice, pantothenic acid significantly reduced valproic acid (VPA)-induced exencephaly, which suggested that pantothenic acid inhibited neural tube defects induced by VPA [4].
