Comments In PHNXL_SYNFM (A0LJ16), the conserved Lys that has been shown to form a Schiff base with the substrate is an Arg, a mutation which completely inactivates the enzyme in Bacillus cereus. This entry is therefore annotated as atypical. Fused with 2-aminoethylphosphonate--pyruvate transaminase (phnW) in CLOD6. For a discussion of phosphonate degradation pathways see: PubMed=16245012; DOI=10.1007/s00239-004-0349-4; Huang J., Su Z., Xu Y.; "The evolution of microbial phosphonate degradative pathways."; J. Mol. Evol. 61:682-690(2005).
