The nucleotide sequence of a cDNA coding for a lignin peroxidase (Lgp) of the white-rot fungus, Phlebia radiata, has been determined. By amino acid (aa) sequencing, it has been shown that the protein product of this gene is the LIII Lgp of Pb. radiata. The isolated gene and the putative aa sequence are about 60% homologous to published Lgp sequences from the fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium. The aa thought to be involved in the catalysis of LIII are revealed by comparison with the yeast… CONTINUE READING
