In view of recent results from different sources, the reaction mechanisms of two heme-thiolate proteins, cytochrome P450cam and chloroperoxidase (CPO), are discussed. In this context a mechanism of CPO is proposed which includes H2O2 cleavage, subsequent formation of compound I and the identification of two elusive intermediates. The HOCl adduct of the(More)
BACKGROUND Chloroperoxidase (CPO) is the most versatile of the hemethiolate proteins, catalyzing the chlorination of activated C-H bonds and reactions reminiscent of peroxidase, catalase, and cytochrome P450. Despite 30 years of continuous efforts, no intermediates of the enzyme's catalytic cycle have been identified except for compound I. Thus, in the(More)
