The intermediate in the reaction catalyzed by 4-chlorobenzoate dehalogenase from Pseudomonas sp. CBS3 was identified as 4-chlorobenzoyl-CoA. One component of 4-chlorobenzoate dehalogenase worked as a a 4-chlorobenzoyl-CoA ligase catalyzing the formation of 4-chlorobenzoyl-CoA from 4-chlorobenzoate, coenzyme A and ATP. This intermediate was detected spectrophotometrically and by HPLC. 4-chlorobenzoyl-CoA was the substrate for the dehalogenase component, which catalyzed the conversion to 4… CONTINUE READING
