Cell-free extracts of Pseudomonas fluorescens strain 23F catalyzed the hydrolysis of phosphonoacetate to acetate and inorganic phosphate; the products were detected in almost equimolar quantities. The stable in vitro activity responsible was distinct from phosphonoacetaldehyde hydrolase and appears to represent a novel mode of carbon-phosphorus bond cleavage.
