The epoxyqueuosine reductase responsible, QueG, shares distant homology with the cobalamin-dependent reductive dehalogenase
(RdhA), however the role played by cobalamin in QueG catalysis has remained elusive.
Other subtype B genes that have become pseudogenes in subtype A specimens and are associated with metabolic pathways are those encoding a haloacid dehalogenase
(LBJ_RS17075) and a methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (LBJ_RS11290), although these genes appear to have putative paralogs with similar function in the genome.
In this work, the bacterial proteins of interest were tagged with a HaloTag, a modified haloalkane dehalogenase
that covalently binds to synthetic Halo-ligands (haloalkanes) that can be fluorescently labeled, thus allowing more robust detection of bait protein binding to interactors present on the array.

Biodegradation of 1,2,3-trichloropropane through directed evolution and heterologous expression of a haloalkane dehalogenase
Interestingly, certain members of the class Flavobacteria, which includes Flavobacterium spp., were reported to possess dehalogenase
activity, and although it has not been demonstrated in isolates derived from the mammalian gut, they may contribute to the metabolism of TCDF and other halogenated compounds (Xun et al.
