5'-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase activity

Known as: S-methyl-5-thioadenosine:phosphate S-methyl-5-thio-alpha-D-ribosyl-transferase activity, MTA phosphorylase activity, methylthioadenosine nucleoside phosphorylase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: 5'-methylthioadenosine + phosphate = adenine + 5-methylthio-D-ribose 1-phosphate. [EC:2.4.2.28]
