Accepted name: 4-chlorophenylacetate 3,4-dioxygenase
Reaction: 4-chlorophenylacetate + NADH + H+ + O2 = 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetate + chloride + NAD+
Systematic name: 4-chlorophenylacetate,NADH:oxygen oxidoreductase (3,4-hydroxylating, dechlorinating)
Comments: A system, containing a reductase and an iron-sulfur oxygenase, and no independent ferredoxin. Requires Fe2+. Also acts on 4-bromophenyl acetate.
