Laccase is a polyphenol oxidase, which belongs to the family of blue multicopper oxidases. These enzymes catalyze the one-electron oxidation of four reducing-substrate molecules concomitant with the four-electron reduction of molecular oxygen to water. Laccases oxidize a broad range of substrates, preferably phenolic compounds. In the presence of mediators,(More)
Laccase isozymes from the white-rot basidiomycete fungi Trametes versicolor and Pycnoporus cinnabarinus were purified to apparent iso-electric homogeneity and crystallised. T. versicolor laccase crystallises in two crystal forms, both with the orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), which diffract to 1.9 and 2.95 A resolution, respectively. The crystals of(More)
