A flavin-dependent halogenase. The enzyme from the bacterium Lechevalieria aerocolonigenes catalyses the initial step in the biosynthesis of rebeccamycin . It utilizes molecular oxygen to oxidize the FADH2 cofactor, giving C4a-hydroperoxyflavin, which then reacts with chloride to produce a hypochlorite ion. The latter reacts with an active site lysine to generate a chloramine, which chlorinates the substrate. Also acts on bromide ion. cf. EC, tryptophan 5-halogenase, and EC, tryptophan 6-halogenase.
