Disease relevance of Ciliatine

  • Analysis of 32P-labeled lipid from the abdominal ganglion revealed the presence of 2-aminoethylphosphonate, indicating that these polar substances are sphingophosphonoglycolipids [1].
  • C-P bond cleavage by a photosynthetic bacterium is reported for the first time; growing photoheterotrophically, Rhodobacter capsulatus ATCC 23782 was able to utilize 2-aminoethylphosphonate and alkylphosphonates [2].
  • 2-Aminoethylphosphonate aminotransferase has been purified to homogeneity with a yield of 15% from cell extracts of Pseudomonas aeruginosa [3].
