Other name(s): ctcP (gene name)
Systematic name: tetracycline:FADH2 oxidoreductase (7-halogenating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces aureofaciens, is a member of the flavin-dependent halogenase family. The enzyme forms a lysine chloramine intermediate on an internal lysine residue before transferring the chlorine to the substrate. It is stereo-selective for the 4S (natural) isomer of tetracycline. FADH2 is provided by a dedicated EC, flavin reductase (NADH).
