|Gene:||phnL||Accession Numbers: EG10721 (MetaCyc), b4096, ECK4089|
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Component of: methylphosphonate degradation complex (summary available)
PhnL, in a mixture together with PhnG, PhnH and PhnI, catalyzes the nucleophilic attack of methylphosphonate on the anomeric carbon of ATP to form adenine and α-D-ribose-1-methylphosphonate-5-triphosphate [Kamat11].
phnL is part of an operon that is phosphate starvation-inducible and required for use of phosphonate and phosphite as phosphorous sources [Yakovleva98, Metcalf91, Chen90a]. PhnL appears to be required for carbon-phosphorous lyase activity [Metcalf93]. A phnL mutant accumulates presumed intermediates of the C-P lyase pathway of phosphonate degradation [HoveJensen10].
