Background: Helicobacter pylori can utilize phenylphosphonate as a sole source of phosphorus, and it is able to transport the phosphonate N-phosphonoacetyl-L-aspartate. However, H. pylori does not have any genes homologous to those of the known pathways for phosphonate degradation in bacteria, indicating that it must have novel pathways for the transport and metabolism of phosphonates. Methods: Phenylphosphonate transport by H. pylori was studied in strains LC20, J99 and N6 by the...[Show more]
