Why does the enzyme SyrB2 chlorinate, but does not hydroxylate, saturated hydrocarbons? A density functional theory (DFT) study.


Syringomycin halogenase (SyrB2) is a non-heme Fe(II)/alpha-ketoglutarate (alphaKG)-dependent enzyme which catalyses halogenation of saturated hydrocarbons, but unlike other closely related enzymes, does not catalyse the corresponding hydroxylation reaction. We have carried out density functional theory (DFT) calculations to try to understand this… (More)
