CYP19A1, or human aromatase catalyzes the conversion of androgens to estrogens in a three-step reaction through the formation of 19-hydroxy and 19-aldehyde intermediates. While the first two steps of hydroxylation are thought to proceed through a high-valent iron-oxo species, controversy exists surrounding the identity of the reaction intermediate that(More)
Cytochrome P450 17A1 (CYP17A1) is an important drug target for castration resistant prostate cancer. It is a bi-functional enzyme, catalyzing production of glucocorticoid precursors by hydroxylation of pregnene-nucleus, and androgen biosynthesis by a second CC lyase step, at the expense of glucocorticoid production. Cytochrome b5 (cyt b5) is known to be a(More)
