The NADPH cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR), a diflavin enzyme, catalyzes the electron transfer (ET) from NADPH to the substrate P450. The crystal structures of mammalian and yeast CPRs show a compact organization for the two domains containing FMN (flavin mononucleotide) and FAD (flavin adenine dinucleotide), with a short interflavin distance consistent with fast ET from the NADPH-reduced FAD to the second flavin FMN. This conformation, referred as "closed", contrasts with the alternative open...Expand abstract
