Abstract
Despite the fact that carbon-phosphorus lyase activity was first documented more than 50 years ago, we are yet to completely understand the details of how this enzyme system functions or what it looks like. In this issue of Structure, Yang et al. (2016) now provide a step forward with a view of how PhnK fits into the bigger picture of carbon-phosphorus lyase.
