Enzyme 5NAA-A only known to exist in one bacteria type

A bacterial warrior the only one of its kind? This enzyme is "wacko" in many ways in its breakdown of a poison related to TNT. On top of that, 5NAA-A is known so far only to exist in a single living organism on Earth. Could it be the lone master of a rare bacterial enzymatic kung fu, in the war on potatoes? Or does a genomic clue point to its existence in one other solitary case?
