Crystal structure of a four-copper laccase complexed with an arylamine: insights into substrate recognition and correlation with kinetics.
Laccases are multicopper oxidases that catalyze the oxidation of a wide range of phenols or arylamines, and their use in industrial oxidative processes is increasing. We purified from the white rotExpand
