Understanding the roles of strictly conserved tryptophan residues in O2 producing chlorite dismutases.

Abstract

The chlorite dismutases (Clds) degrade ClO(2)(-) to O(2) and Cl(-) in perchlorate respiring bacteria, and they serve still poorly defined cellular roles in other diverse microbes. These proteins share 3 highly conserved Trp residues, W155, W156, and W227, on the proximal side of the heme. The Cld from Dechloromonas aromatica (DaCld) has been shown to form… (More)
