EC 2.1.1.136     
Accepted name: chlorophenol O-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + trichlorophenol = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + trichloroanisole
Other name(s): halogenated phenol O-methyltransferase; trichlorophenol O-methyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:trichlorophenol O-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme from the fungus Trichoderma sp. virgatum, when cultured in the presence of halogenated phenol, also acts on a range of mono-, di- and trichlorophenols.
