Carrier protein substrates in cytochrome P450-catalysed oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Enzymes of the cytochrome P450 superfamily can catalyse many types of oxidative transformations of a diverse substrate range. This review summarises recent work on an subset of P450s that accept their substrates in carrier protein-bound form. These examples show how the oxidative power and precision that P450s bring to natural products biosynthesis can be coupled with the advantages of using a carrier protein as a scaffold for oxidation.
