ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
7-chloro-L-tryptophan oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
7-chloro-L-tryptophan + O(2) <=> 2-imino-3-(7-chloroindol-3-yl)propanoate + H(2)O(2)
  • This enzyme catalyzes a step in the biosynthesis of rebeccamycin, an indolocarbazole alkaloid produced by the bacterium Lechevalieria aerocolonigenes.
  • During catalysis, the bound FAD is reoxidized at the expense of molecular oxygen, producing one molecule of hydrogen peroxide.
  • The enzyme shows significant preference for 7-chloro-L-tryptophan over L-tryptophan.
