IUBMB Comments

Bromoperoxidases of red and brown marine algae (Rhodophyta and Phaeophyta) contain vanadate. They catalyse the bromination of a range of organic molecules such as sesquiterpenes, forming stable C-Br bonds. Bromoperoxidases also oxidize iodides.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota, Archaea

Synonyms
v-brpo, perhydrolase, bpo-a1, vanadium-dependent bromoperoxidase, bromoperoxidase ii, bromoperoxidase-catalase, bpo-a2, vanadium-containing bromoperoxidase, vbrpo, non-heme haloperoxidases, more
