EC 4.1.1.81     
Accepted name: threonine-phosphate decarboxylase
Reaction: L-threonine O-3-phosphate = (R)-1-aminopropan-2-yl phosphate + CO2

Other name(s): L-threonine-O-3-phosphate decarboxylase; CobD; L-threonine-O-3-phosphate carboxy-lyase
Systematic name: L-threonine-O-3-phosphate carboxy-lyase [(R)-1-aminopropan-2-yl-phosphate-forming]
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. This enzyme is unable to decarboxylate the D-isomer of threonine O-3-phosphate. The product of this reaction, (R)-1-aminopropan-2-yl phosphate, is the substrate of EC 6.3.1.10, adenosylcobinamide-phosphate synthase, which converts adenosylcobyric acid into adenosylcobinamide phosphate in the anaerobic cobalamin biosynthesis pathway.
