PhnA_Zn_Ribbon

PhnA Zinc-Ribbon
PhnA_Zn_Ribbon
SMART accession number:SM00782
Description: This protein family includes an uncharacterised member designated phnA in Escherichia coli, part of a large operon associated with alkylphosphonate uptake and carbon-phosphorus bond cleavage. This protein is not related to the characterised phosphonoacetate hydrolase designated PhnA.
Interpro abstract (IPR013991):

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 [(PUBMED:2155230)]. The protein is not related to the characterised phosphonoacetate hydrolase designated PhnA [(PUBMED: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.
