Detection of domain motion in NADPH-cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase through polarization anisotropy measurements

Kovrigina, Xia, Kovrigin, Kim, E. A., J.-J., E. L., C.
Conformational transitions between closed and open states in the NADPH-cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase (POR) play a critical role in its electron-transport function. In this study, we determined rotational diffusion coefficients of the EDANS fluorophore attached to the cytosolic POR construct lacking the N-terminal transmembrane region. We identified two dynamic modes, slow and fast, which are interpreted as the rotational diffusion of POR as a whole and the local domain motion, respectively. Timescale of the local rotational diffusion component suggests that it may correspond to the transient opening of the fully oxidized POR structure.
