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.

compounds or reactions. This map is also available in graphic (5k) format.
Dimethylphosphinate (DMP) Agrobacterium radiobacter | | | carbon-phosphorus lyase | | v Methylphosphonate | | | carbon-phosphorus lyase | | v Phosphate
