Fatty acid omega-hydroxylation is involved in the biosynthesis of the plant cuticle, formation of plant defense signaling molecules, and possibly in the rapid catabolism of free fatty acids liberated under stress conditions. CYP94A2 is a cytochrome P450-dependent medium-chain fatty acid hydroxylase that was recently isolated from Vicia sativa. Contrary to CYP94A1 and CYP86A1, two other fatty acid hydroxylases previously characterized in V. sativa and Arabidopsis thaliana, CYP94A2 is not a… 
Molecular definitions of fatty acid hydroxylases in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Comparison between these five P450s at constant P450 content over a range of concentrations for individual fatty acids indicates that binding of different fatty acids to CYP86A2 always results in a higher proportion of high spin state heme than binding titrations conducted with CYP84A1 or CYP85A4.
Engineering of a Water-Soluble Plant Cytochrome P450, CYP73A1, and NMR-Based Orientation of Natural and Alternate Substrates in the Active Site1
TLDR
The native CYP73A1, initially isolated from Jerusalem artichoke, was engineered to simplify purification from recombinant yeast and improve solublity and stability in the absence of detergent by replacing the hydrophobic N terminus with the peptitergent amphipathic sequence PD1.
Metabolomics for the characterization of cytochromes P450-dependent fatty acid hydroxylation reactions in Arabidopsis
TLDR
The fatty acid hydroxylation activity of CYP78A7 was confirmed using FT-ICR/MS metabolic profiling of P450-gene-overexpressing lines of cultured Arabidopsis T87 cells and the practical application of this metabolic profiling scheme is discussed as a P450 functional characterization platform.
Differential Expression and Evolution of the Arabidopsis CYP86A Subfamily1[w]
TLDR
Analysis of the promoter sequences for each of the CYP86A and CYP94B genes with their expression patterns has highlighted a number of elements in current databases that potentially correlate with the responses of individual genes.
CYP77A19 and CYP77A20 characterized from Solanum tuberosum oxidize fatty acids in vitro and partially restore the wild phenotype in an Arabidopsis thaliana cutin mutant.
Cutin and suberin represent lipophilic polymers forming plant/environment interfaces in leaves and roots. Despite recent progress in Arabidopsis, there is still a lack on information concerning cutin
The Cytochrome P450 Enzyme CYP96A15 Is the Midchain Alkane Hydroxylase Responsible for Formation of Secondary Alcohols and Ketones in Stem Cuticular Wax of Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
Most aerial surfaces of plants are covered by cuticular wax that is synthesized in epidermal cells. The wax mixture on the inflorescence stems of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) is dominated by

Cytochrome P450 metabolizing fatty acids in plants: characterization and physiological roles
TLDR
Several lines of evidence discussed in this minireview are consistent with P450s metabolizing FAs in many aspects of plant biology, such as defence against pathogens and herbivores, development, catabolism or reproduction.
Oxidative biotransformation of fatty acids by cytochromes P450: predicted key structural elements orchestrating substrate specificity, regioselectivity and catalytic efficiency.
TLDR
Based on a general, CYP102A1-related construct, the majority of prospective key determinants participating in fatty acid recognition/binding were found to cluster near the distal heme face made up by the helical B', F, G and I tetrad as well as the B'-C interhelical loop and certain beta-sheet segments.

Cloning and functional characterization of CYP94A2, a medium chain fatty acid hydroxylase from Vicia sativa.
TLDR
Heterologous expression of CYP94A2 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain WAT11 shows that it catalyses the hydroxylation of myristic acid with a K(m(app)) of 4.0 microM and a turnover rate number of 80 min(-1).
Effects of steric bulk and conformational rigidity on fatty acid omega hydroxylation by a cytochrome P450 4A1 fusion protein.
TLDR
The fact that commonly used therapeutic agents strongly inhibit lauric acid omega-hydroxylation by f4A1 as well as liver microsomes from clofibrate-induced rats suggests these and related agents could potentially interfere with the contribution of CYP4A enzymes to the metabolism of endogenous lipids.
Cloning, Expression in Yeast, and Functional Characterization of CYP81B1, a Plant Cytochrome P450 That Catalyzes In-chain Hydroxylation of Fatty Acids*
TLDR
A systematic exploration of its function revealed that it specifically catalyzes the hydroxylation of medium chain saturated fatty acids, capric, lauric, and myristic acids.
CYP86A1 from Arabidopsis thaliana encodes a cytochrome P450-dependent fatty acid omega-hydroxylase.
TLDR
Genomic organization analyzed by Southern blot suggested a single gene encoding CYP86A1 in A. thaliana, which was found to catalyze the omega-hydroxylation of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18 but not of hexadecane.
Positional Specificity of Rabbit CYP4B1 for ω-Hydroxylation1of Short-Medium Chain Fatty Acids and Hydrocarbons
TLDR
Rabbit CYP4B1 was incubated with a series of fatty acid and hydrocarbon substrates and metabolites and the presence of a dominant hydrocarbon binding site which effectively restricts the access of short-medium chain n-alkyl substrates to the perferryl species in the active site of rabbit CYP1 is suggested.
Different mechanisms of regioselection of fatty acid hydroxylation by laurate (omega-1)-hydroxylating P450s, P450 2C2 and P450 2E1.
TLDR
P450 2C2 as well as P450 2E1 catalyzed the hydroxylation of medium chain fatty acids, although the regioselectivity of substrates of the former contrasted with that of the latter, which resulted in a significant decrease in the proportion of the omega-1 hydroxy analog in the total products.
Functional expression in yeast and characterization of a clofibrate-inducible plant cytochrome P-450 (CYP94A1) involved in cutin monomers synthesis.
TLDR
The chemical tagging of a cytochrome P-450-dependent lauric acid omega-hydroxylase from clofibrate-treated Vicia sativa seedlings with [1-14C]11-dodecynoic acid allowed the isolation of a full-length cDNA designated CYP94A1, which was strong regioselectivity shifted with sulphur-containing substrates.
Mutual conversion of fatty-acid substrate specificity by a single amino-acid exchange at position 527 in P-450Cm2 and P-450Alk3A.
TLDR
It is proposed that the amino acid at position 527 may serve to close the substrate-binding pocket near to the haem in the fatty-acid-omega-hydroxylating P-450 of the CYP52 family.
New cytochrome P450-dependent reactions from wheat: terminal and sub-terminal hydroxylation of oleic acid by microsomes from naphthalic acid anhydride and phenobarbital induced wheat seedlings.
TLDR
The results suggest that at least two different P450 enzymes are involved in the oxidation of oleic and lauric acids in wheat.
