*          The work was highly cited in a  recent review by one of the P450 field's leaders (P.R. Ortiz de Montellano, J.J. de Vos, Nat. Prod. 2002, 19, 1-18) write on page 8 about the two-state reactivity work: "This mechanism is at once as complex, intriguing and satisfying as the chemistry of the P450 enzymes themselves", and ends his review article in the follwing statement: "Perhaps one of the most useful advances in the recent past has come from computational chemistry, which has provided a two-state reactivity model that readiliy rationalizes the experimental data.".
