Superfamily: PhoD-like phosphatase

This superfamily entry includes PhoD-like phosphatases, an alkaline phosphatase PMID:8760916. Enzymes of the PhoD family are the least well characterised of the three major classes of bacterial extra-cytoplasmic alkaline phosphatase. The archetype of the family is Bacillus subtilis PhoD. This enzyme is a phosphodiesterase but also has significant phosphomonoesterase activity PMID:25217636. PhoD requires Ca2+ for activity; PhoD is similar to Ca(2+)-dependent phospholipase D PMID:17906150. The physiological role of PhoD is proposed to be the release of phosphate from cell wall teichoic acids under conditions of phosphate starvation PMID:25217636.
