In mitochondria, ethanolamine-phosphate phospho-lyase and 5-phosphohydroxy-L-lysine phospho-lyase (ETNPPL and PHYKPL respectively) are two closely related pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent, homotetrameric ammoniophospholyases that hydrolyse phosphoethanolamine (PETA) and 5-phosphohydroxylysine (5PHL) respectively (Veiga-da-Cunha et al. 2012). PETA is a component and a precursor of phospholipids whereas 5PHL is a breakdown product of collagen. ETNPPL utilises one pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PXLP) as cofactor per subunit.
