Hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazene (RDX) is a military explosive that has become a recalcitrant environmental pollutant over the last few decades owing to its production, storage and use. CYP177A1 (XplA) is a biotechnologically interesting and novel class of P450-flavodoxin fusion enzyme identified from Rhodococcus rhodochrous strain 11Y that catalyses the breakdown of RDX. Its redox partner is a NAD(P)H-dependent FAD-binding flavodoxin reductase (XplB). This study reports the biochemical… CONTINUE READING
