Biodegradation of dyes and polyaromatic hydrocarbons by two allelic forms of Lentinula edodes laccase expressed from Pichia pastoris.
Laccases from basidiomycetes are efficient enzymes in the degradation of xenobiotics. In this study we aimed to provide an industrially relevant expression system for Lentinula edodes laccases, to… Expand

Growth hormone (GH), or somatotropin, is a protein that may enhance physical performance and facilitate growth and wound healing. For this reason, growth hormones and their recombinant analogues are… Expand
A Novel Lentinula edodes Laccase and Its Comparative Enzymology Suggest Guaiacol-Based Laccase Engineering for Bioremediation
Laccases are versatile biocatalysts for the bioremediation of various xenobiotics, including dyes and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. However, current sources of new enzymes, simple heterologous… Expand
A single Phe54Tyr substitution improves the catalytic activity and thermostability of Trigonopsis variabilis D-amino acid oxidase.
The industrial importance of Trigonopsis variabilisd-amino acid oxidase (TvDAAO) is represented by its biocatalytic oxidative deamination of cephalosporin C (CPC) to yield… Expand
Metergoline-induced cell death in Candida krusei.
Metergoline possesses potent antifungal activity against Candida krusei, a notorious yeast species that is inherently resistant to the common antifungal agents. In an attempt to elucidate the action… Expand
Genome sequence and genetic linkage analysis of Shiitake mushroom Lentinula edodes
_Lentinula edodes_ (Shiitake/Xianggu) is an important cultivated mushroom. Understanding the genomics and functional genomics of _L. edodes_ allows us to improve its cultivation and quality. Genome… Expand

Isolation and characterization of Candida kefyr orotidine‐5′‐phosphate decarboxylase (URA3) gene
Candida kefyr is a common yeast species that can be found in fermented milk and cheeses. As a first step to developing a gene transfer system for C. kefyr, the orotidine‐5′‐phosphate decarboxylase… Expand
Entrapment of a Trigonopsis variabilis D‐amino acid oxidase variant F54Y for oxidative deamination of cephalosporin C
Trigonopsis variabilis D‐amino acid oxidase (TvDAAO) is an enzyme used in the industrial bioconversion of cephalosporin C (CPC) into 7‐aminocephalosporanic acid, a crucial biosynthetic nucleus for a… Expand
