This pathway was contributed by Dr. Larry Wackett and completed by Fei Xu, University of Minnesota.

Dimethylphosphinate has been shown to be decomposed to methylphosphonate, and further to phosphate, by a carbon-phosphorus lyase expressed in Agrobacterium radiobacter (Wackett et al., 1987).

The following is a text-format Dimethylphosphinate pathway map. An organism which can initiate the pathway is given, but other organisms may also carry out later steps. Follow the links for more information on compounds or reactions. This map is also available in graphic (5k) format.
