Accepted name: chlorite O2-lyase
Reaction: chloride + O2 = chlorite
Systematic name: chloride:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: Reaction occurs in the reverse direction in chlorate- and perchlorate-reducing bacteria. There is no activity when chlorite is replaced by hydrogen peroxide, perchlorate, chlorate or nitrite. The term 'chlorite dismutase' is misleading as the reaction does not involve dismutation/disproportionation. Contains iron and protoheme IX.
