Cytochrome P450 BM-3 is a soluble fatty acid hydroxylase
composed of a heme domain and a reductase domain on a
single polypeptide chain.[1]
We recently described a laboratory-
evolved variant of the P450 BM-3 heme domain which functions
as an H2O2-driven hydroxylase (TMperoxygenase) and does not
require NADPH, O2, or the reductase.[2]
This variant, which we
named 21B3, allows us to carry out cytochrome P450-catalyzed
biotransformations under highly simplified reaction conditions:
only the heme domain and hydrogen peroxide are needed for
substrate (fatty acid) hydroxylation. Because its heme domain
