Two-component-diffusible-flavomonooxygenases are versatile biocatalysts for selective epoxidation-, hydroxylation- or halogenation reactions. Their complicated molecular architecture can be simplified using photochemical regeneration of the catalytically active, reduced FADH 2 prosthetic group. In this contribution we provide the proof-of-concept and characterization for the direct regeneration of the styrene monooxygenase from Pseudomonas.
