Oxygenated derivatives of the monoterpene (+)-alpha-pinene are found in plant essential oils and used as fragrances and flavorings. (+)-alpha-Pinene is structurally related to (+)-camphor, the natural substrate of the heme monooxygenase cytochrome P450(cam) from Pseudomonas putida. The aim of the present work was to apply the current understanding of P450 substrate binding and catalysis to engineer P450(cam) for the selective oxidation of (+)-alpha-pinene. Consideration of the structures of (...Expand abstract
