Cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR) is a diflavin enzyme responsible for electron donation to mammalian cytochrome P450 enzymes in the endoplasmic reticulum. Dissection of the enzyme into functional domains and studies by site-directed mutagenesis have enabled detailed characterization of the mechanism of electron transfer using stopped-flow and equilibrium-perturbation methods, and redox potentiometry. These studies and the mechanism of electron transfer in CPR are reported herein.
