MetaCyc Polypeptide: predicted carbon-phosphorus lyase subunit
Inferred from experiment

Gene: phnK Accession Numbers: EG10720 (MetaCyc), b4097, ECK4090

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

PhnK is a component of a protein complex that may be a carbon-phosphorus lyase [Jochimsen11].

phnK is part of an operon that is phosphate starvation-inducible and required for use of phosphonate and phosphite as phosphorous sources [Metcalf91, Chen90a]. PhnK appears to be required for carbon-phosphorous lyase activity [Metcalf93]. A phnK mutant accumulates presumed intermediates of the C-P lyase pathway of phosphonate degradation [HoveJensen10].
