The crystal structure of the FMN-binding domain of human NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase (P450R-FMN), a key component in the cytochrome P450 monooxygenase system, has been determined to 1.93 A resolution and shown to be very similar both to the global fold in solution (Barsukov I et al., 1997, J Biomol NMR 10:63-75) and to the corresponding domain in the(More)
The enantioselective synthesis of Anomala osakana pheromone and Janus integer pheromone has been achieved without using any protecting groups. The synthesis involved using an asymmetric alkynylation to obtain gamma-hydroxy-alpha,beta-acetylenic esters with high ee (84%) and yields ( approximately 80%), followed by selective hydrogenation and lactonization(More)
The two functional domains of a cloned human fibroblast NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase have been expressed in Escherichia coli and purified on the milligram scale for crystallization studies. One domain contains the cofactor FMN-binding site and the other contains the binding sites for cofactor FAD and substrate NADPH. Crystals of both domains have been(More)
