A novel, inducible carbon-phosphorus bond cleavage enzyme, phosphonopyruvate hydrolase, was detected in cell-free extracts of Burkholderia cepacia Pal6, an environmental isolate capable of mineralising l-phosphonoalanine as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus source. The activity was induced only in the presence of phosphonoalanine, did not require phosphate starvation for induction and was uniquely specific for phosphonopyruvate, producing equimolar quantities of pyruvate and inorganic phosphate… CONTINUE READING
