3.A.1.7.1
Phosphate porter, PhoSPstABC.  Serves as both a transporter and a sensor for transcriptional activation of the pho regulon in the presence of low external phosphate.  The unphosphorylated EIIANtr protein of the PTS (TC# 4.A) activates PhoR, the senor kinase that phosphorylates the response regulator, PhoB, that activates the pho regulon (Lüttmann et al. 2012).
