Nitrogen activation: Though P450 enzymes are masters of oxygen activation and insertion into CH bonds, their ability to use nitrogen for the same purpose has so far not been explored. Engineered variants of cytochrome P450BM3 have now been found to catalyze intramolecular CH aminations in azide substrates. Mutations to two highly conserved residues significantly increased this activity.
