Properties and biotechnological applications of halohydrin dehalogenases: current state and future perspectives


Halohydrin dehalogenases (HHDHs) are lyases that catalyze the cleavage of carbon–halogen bond of halohydrins. They also can catalyze the reverse reaction in the presence of nucleophiles such as cyanide, azide, and nitrite ions. HHDHs have been recognized as the ideal tools for the degradation of various halogenated environmental pollutants. Moreover, they… (More)
