Despite the remarkable versatility displayed by flavin-dependent monooxygenases (FMOs) in natural product biosynthesis, one notably missing activity is the oxidative generation of carbonate functional groups. We describe a multifunctional Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase, CcsB, which catalyzes the formation of an in-line carbonate

The nitro-chloromethylbenzindoline prodrug SN29428 has been rationally designed to target tumour hypoxia. SN29428 is metabolised to a DNA minor groove alkylator via oxygen-sensitive reductive activation initiated by unknown one-electron reductases. The present study sought to identify reductases capable of activating
