New Halogenases discovered
Halogenases from nature's cornucopia

Sometimes one is struck by the richness of nature. While not many halogenating enzymes are known yet, there are a lot more out there. And as our study, now published in Catalysts, showed, there seems to be genetic and structural diversity. Together with our colleagues from bioinformatics, we were able to make new halogenating enzymes accessible for research and perhaps in the future also for preparative implementation. The recently identified vanadate-dependent haloperoxidase from Rhodoplanes roseus seems to suffer less substrate inhibition - a feature that is desirable.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues from the Usadel (FZJ, HHU) and Gohlke (FZJ, HHU) working groups for their fruitful collaboration.  The project was supported by the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC).
