PhnA protein N-terminal, proteobacterial (IPR013991)

Short name: PhnaA_N_proteobac

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships


The PhnA protein family includes the uncharacterised Escherichia coli protein PhnA and its homologues. The E. coli phnA gene is part of a large operon associated with alkylphosphonate uptake and carbon-phosphorus bond cleavage [PMID: 2155230]. The protein is not related to the characterised phosphonoacetate hydrolase designated PhnA [PMID: 9300819].

This entry represents the N-terminal domain of PhnA proteins, which is predicted to form a zinc-ribbon, found in some proteobacteria. It does not include the E. coli sequence.
