MCO1, a multicopper oxidase from Phanerochaete chrysosporium exhibiting strong ferroxidase activity, has recently been described. This enzyme shows biochemical and structural similarities with the yeast Fet3p, a type I membrane glycoprotein that efficiently oxidizes Fe(II) to Fe(III) for its subsequent transport to the intracellular compartment by the iron permease Ftr1p. The genome database of P. chrysosporium was searched to verify whether it includes a canonical fet3 in addition to mco1, and… CONTINUE READING
