It is impossible to review fully the important contributions of many co-operating research teams, which has led to our present insight in redox reactions catalyzed by flavin containing proteins. The pioneering research and the development of insight in the molecular events is adequately summarized in review articles and symposium proceedings, to which the interested reader is referred [1–7].
