The corresponding article with the title "Molecular mechanism of enzymatic chlorite degradation: insights from structural and kinetic studies" deals with a novel heme enzyme that is able to efficiently detoxify the environmental pollutant chlorite while producing breathable oxygen. In order to create a basis for future biotechnological applications, a series of biochemical and biophysical methods were used to understand the mechanistic details of the underlying reaction.
