Reaction: an L-threonyl-[L-threonyl-carrier protein] + 2-oxoglutarate + O2 + Cl- = a 4-chloro-L-threonyl-[L-threonyl-carrier protein] + succinate + CO2 + H2O
Other name(s): syrB2 (gene name)
Systematic name: L-threonyl-[L-threonyl-carrier protein],2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase (4-halogenating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas syringae, participates in syringomycin E biosynthesis. The enzyme is a specialized Fe(II)/2-oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenase that catalyses the chlorination of its substrate in a reaction that requires oxygen, chloride ions, ferrous iron and 2-oxoglutarate.
