Cellobiose dehydrogenase (cellobiose oxidase) from Phanerochaete chrysosporium as a wood-degrading enzyme. Studies on cellulose, xylan and synthetic lignin

Abstract

Degradation of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), xylan and synthetic lignin was studied in a cellobiose dehydrogenase system, that reduced Fe(III) to Fe(II) with cellobiose as electron donor, which in the presence of hydrogen peroxide degraded all the above representatives of the main wood components, probably by forming Fenton's reagent. The production of… (More)
