Accepted name: bromide peroxidase
Reaction: RH + HBr + H2O2 = RBr + 2 H2O
Other name(s): bromoperoxidase; haloperoxidase (ambiguous); eosinophil peroxidase
Systematic name: bromide:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase
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.
