Cytochrome P450(BM3), from Bacillus megaterium, catalyses the epoxidation of linolenic acid yielding 15,16-epoxyoctadeca-9,12-dienoic acid with complete regio- and moderate enantio-selectivity (60% ee). The absolute configuration of the product is tentatively assigned as 15(R),16(S)-. The Michaelis-Menten parameters kcat and Km for the reaction were determined to be 3126 +/- 226 min(-1) and 24 +/- 6 microM respectively.
