Accepted name: 2-haloacid dehalogenase (configuration-retaining)
Reaction: (1) (S)-2-haloacid + H2O = (S)-2-hydroxyacid + halide
(2) (R)-2-haloacid + H2O = (R)-2-hydroxyacid + halide
Other name(s): 2-haloalkanoic acid dehalogenase; 2-haloalkanoid acid halidohydrolase; DL-2-haloacid dehalogenase; DL-DEXr
Systematic name: (S)-2-haloacid dehalogenase (configuration-retaining)
Comments: Dehalogenates both (S)- and (R)-2-haloalkanoic acids to the corresponding (S)- and (R)-hydroxyalkanoic acids, respectively, with retention of configuration at C-2. [See also EC (S)-2-haloacid dehalogenase, EC (R)-2-haloacid dehalogenase and EC 2-haloacid dehalogenase (configuration-inverting)]
