Background: cytb5 modulates catalysis performed by cytsP450, in vivo and in vitro. Results: The structure of full-length cytb5 was solved by NMR, and the cytP450-binding site on cytb5 was identified by mutagenesis and NMR. Conclusion: A model of the cytb5-cytP450 complex is presented. Addition of a substrate strengthens the cytb 5-cytP450 interaction. Significance: The cytb5-cytP450 complex structure will help unravel the mechanism by which cytb5 regulates catalysis by cytP450.
