- 2,4,6-trichlorophenol + FADH(2) + O(2) <=> 2,6-dichlorobenzoquinone + Cl(-) + FAD + H(2)O
- 2,6-dichlorohydroquinone + FADH(2) + O(2) <=> 2-chloro-6-hydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone + Cl(-) + FAD + H(2)O
- The enzyme, characterized from a number of bacterial species,
participates in the degradation of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol, a compound
that has been used for decades as a wood preservative.
- The enzyme is a multifunctional flavin-dependent monooxygenase that
displaces two chlorine atoms by attacking two different positions in
- Each reaction catalyzed by the enzyme displaces a single chlorine and
results in formation of a dione, which must be reduced by FADH(2)
before the monooxygenase could catalyze the second reaction.
- The large amount of FADH(2) that is required is generated by a
dedicated flavin reductase (TcpB).
- Cf. EC 184.108.40.206.
