Rational Re-Engineering of the O-Dealkylation of 7-Alkoxycoumarin Derivatives by Cytochromes P450 2B from the Desert Woodrat Neotoma lepida.

On the basis of recent functional and structural characterization of cytochromes P450 2B from the desert woodrat (Neotoma lepida), the 7-alkoxycoumarin and 7-alkoxy-4-(trifluoromethyl)coumarin O-dealkylation profiles of CYP2B35 and CYP2B37 were re-engineered. Point mutants interchanging residues at seven positions in the enzyme active sites were created and… (More)
