The structure of a P450 ω-hydroxylase bound to its fatty acid product was determined, which revealed a narrow substrate tunnel that leads to the heme. The introduction of an arginine side chain in proximity to the carboxyl group of the fatty acid led to a reduced KM value for dodecanoic acid, which suggests the importance of an anchoring point in the active site. An increase in the flexibility of the substrate recognition region was also engineered, which resulted in a threefold improved product formation.
