The first published description of a structure of a prokaryotic phosphopentomutase was in 2011. Structures of Bacillus cereus phosphopentomutase as it was purified, after activation, bound to ribose 5-phosphate and bound to glucose 1,6-bisphosphate are deposited in the PDB with accession codes 3M8W, 3M8Y, 3M8Z and 3OT9, respectively.
