ABSTRACT
Recently, it was found that mutations in the binding cavity of drug-metabolizing Cytochrome P450 BM3 mutants can result in major changes in regioselectivity in testosterone (TES) hydroxylation. In the current work, we report the intrinsic reactivity of TES' C-H bonds and our attempts to rationalize experimentally observed changes in TES hydroxylation using a protein structure-based in silico approach, by setting up and employing a combined Molecular Dynamics (MD) and ligand docking approach to account for the flexibility and plasticity of BM3 mutants. Using this approach, about 100,000 TES binding poses were obtained per mutant. The predicted regioselectivity in TES hydroxylation by the mutants was found to be in disagreement with experiment. As revealed in a detailed structural analysis of the obtained docking poses, this disagreement is due to limitations in correctly scoring hydrogen-bonding and steric interactions with specific active-site residues, which could explain the experimentally observed trends in regioselectivity in TES hydroxylation.

    The active site of liver-specific, drug-metabolizing cytochrome P450 (CYP) monooxygenases is deeply buried in the protein and is connected to the protein surface through multiple tunnels, many of which were found open in different CYP crystal structures. It has been shown that different tunnels...

    Cytochrome P450 enzymes are found in all life forms. P450s play an important role in drug metabolism, and have potential uses as biocatalysts. Human P450s are membrane-bound proteins. However, the interactions between P450s and their membrane environment are not well-understood. To date, all...
