Microbial communities and haloalkane dehalogenases

Haloalkane dehalogenases (HLDs) catalyze the hydrolytic dehalogenation in a wide range of halogenated compounds, yielding an alcohol, a proton and a halide. They play an important role in the detoxification of a wide range of halogenated pollutants. HLDs have attracted the interest of biotechnological companiesand the chemical industry as valuable biocatalysts for bioremediation and biotransformation reactions.
