How is the distal pocket of a heme protein optimised for binding of tryptophan? Binding of tryptophan is a particular speciality of the distal active sites of the tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase and indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase catalytic enzymes. Using mutagenesis, we probe the functional role various active site residues in both human enzymes and make comparisons with other related heme enzymes
