The combined action of a wide substrate range toluene o-xylene monooxygenase from Pseudomonas sp. OX1, able to convert many aromatic compounds into mono- and di-hydroxylated derivatives, and fungal laccases from Pleurotus ostreatus which oxidize these hydroxylated products yielding polymers with reduced toxicity is described. This strategy permits to overcome many of the substrate specificity problems and dead end toxic products formation generally encountered in complex bacterial… CONTINUE READING
