Conserved Site

Acid phosphatase, class A, bacterial, conserved site (IPR018296)

Short name: Acid_Pase_classA_bac_CS


Class A bacterial acid phosphatases (EC: are a group of related proteins that catalyse the conversion of an orthophosphoric monoester and water to an alcohol and orthophosphate [PMID: 1938882, PMID: 8081499]. This reaction is non-specific and occurs in the periplasm. The enzyme is found as a homotetramer in Morganella morganii (Proteus morganii) [PMID: 1938882] and possibly as a homodimer in Salmonella typhimurium, where it is regulated by a 2-component regulatory system formed by the products of the phoP and phoQ genes [PMID: 8081499].
