Phosphoketolases (XFPs) are glycolytic enzymes present in several organisms belonging to the Eukarya and Bacteria domains. A total of 151 putative xfp genes were detected in 650 complete genomes available in public databases. Elimination of redundant sequences and pseudogenes rendered a final data set of 128 phosphoketolases, which was analyzed by phylogenetic methods. The distribution of xfp genes was uneven in most taxonomic groups, with the exception of the taxonomical division… CONTINUE READING
