|Gene:||phnM||Accession Numbers: EG10722 (MetaCyc), b4095, ECK4088|
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
PhnM catalyzes hydrolysis of α-D-ribose-1-methylphosphonate-5-triphosphate, generating α-D-ribose-1-methylphosphonate 5-phosphate and pyrophosphate [Kamat11]. PhnM is a member of the amidohydrolase superfamily [Seibert05].
phnM is part of an operon that is phosphate starvation-inducible and required for use of phosphonate and phosphite as phosphorous sources [Yakovleva98, Metcalf91, Chen90c]. PhnM appeared to be required for carbon-phosphorous lyase activity [Metcalf93].
