The reduction of perchlorate to chlorite, the first enzymatic step in the bacterial reduction of perchlorate, is
catalyzed by perchlorate reductase. The genes encoding perchlorate reductase (pcrABCD) in two Dechloromonas
species were characterized. Sequence analysis of the pcrAB gene products revealed similarity to - and
-subunits of microbial nitrate reductase, selenate reductase, dimethyl sulfide dehydrogenase, ethylbenzene
