ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.19.58

Accepted Name
Tryptophan 5-halogenase.
Reaction catalysed
L-tryptophan + FADH(2) + chloride + O(2) + H(+) <=> 5-chloro-L-tryptophan + FAD + 2 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • A flavin-dependent halogenase.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Streptomyces rugosporus catalyzes halogenation of the C-5 position of tryptophan during the biosynthesis of the antibiotic compound pyrroindomycin B.
  • It utilizes molecular oxygen to oxidize the FADH(2) cofactor, giving C4a-hydroperoxyflavin, which then reacts with chloride to produce a hypochlorite ion.
  • The latter reacts with an active site lysine to generate a chloramine, which chlorinates the substrate.
  • cf. EC 1.14.19.59 and EC 1.14.19.9.
