Accepted name: tryptophan 7-halogenase
Reaction: tryptophan + FADH2 + chloride + O2 + H+ = 7-chloro-L-tryptophan + FAD + 2 H2O

Other name(s): PrnA; RebH
Systematic name: L-tryptophan:FADH2 oxidoreductase (7-halogenating)
Comments: In the bacterium Lechevalieria aerocolonigenes the enzyme catalyses the initial step in the biosynthesis of rebeccamycin [2]. Also acts on bromide ion.
