Putting a C in Cytochrome Cytochrome P450 enzymes oxidize hydrocarbons using a highly reactive iron oxo intermediate. Much research has focused on tuning the protein structure to broaden the range of hydrocarbons that can be functionalized. Coelho et al. (p. 307, published online 20 December; see the Perspective by Narayan and Sherman) substituted a carbene source for the oxygen to make a P450 mutant a cyclopropanation catalyst whereby a carbon fragment is transferred in place of oxygen.

TLDR
This work captures and studies a reactive iron porphyrin carbene (IPC) intermediate in the heme binding pocket of an engineered cytochrome c protein to provide insight into how a “carbene transferase” acquired its new-to-nature function as well as how it facilitates efficient and selective transfer of the carbene to a second substrate.
