CommentMembers of this protein family are EutB, a predicted arylmalonate decarboxylase found in a conserved ectoine utilization operon of species that include Sinorhizobium meliloti 1021 (where it is known to be induced by ectoine), Mesorhizobium loti, Silicibacter pomeroyi, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, and Pseudomonas putida. Members of this family resemble threonine dehydratases.
