Namephosphonates ABC transport
DescriptionPhosphonates are a varied class of compound with a direct C-P bond that can be significantly more stable than indirect C-O-P bond of organic phosphates. Phosphonates may be toxic but also may be utilized as a sorce of phosphorus, carbon, and energy. Some species appear to have a (sometimes two) membrane-associated C-P lyase complex, PhnGHIJKLM, for degradation of many different (but not all) phosphonates, while other species have single gene-encoded phosphonatases active on specific compounds. This property represents the presence of transporters for phosphonates and related C-P bond-containing compounds (e.g. phosphites); it should be found in association with either the C-P lysase membrane complex or specific phoshonatases, but not all of the latter are known.
