Ahmed, Sabbir and Owen, Caroline P. (1998) Mechanism of 17[alpha]-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase--an initial geometric perspective for the lyase of the C(17)-C(20) bond of C[sub]21 steroids. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters, 8(9), pp. 1023-1028. ISSN (print) 0960-894XFull text not available from this archive.
Using the novel 'substrate-heme complex' approach, the mechanism of 17 alpha-Hydroxylase/17,20-Lyase (P-450(17) alpha), in particular the lyase of the C(17)-C(20) bond, is considered from a geometric perspective. The results of the study appear to suggest that the final oxidative step in the lyase of the C(17)-C(20) bond involves the use of a ferroxy attacking species as opposed to peroxy or a mixture of ferroxy and peroxy, an observation which is consistent with results previously obtained with Aromatase.
