Understanding the substrate specificity of tyrosinases (EC 1.14.18.1) as well as their capability to oxidize peptide-bound tyrosine residues is important in a view of applicability of tyrosinases. In the present study, two fungal tyrosinases, an extracellular enzyme from the filamentous fungus Trichoderma reesei (TrT) and an intracellular enzyme from the edible mushroom Agaricus bisporus (AbT) were compared. Oxidation of various monoand diphenolic compounds and tyrosine-containing tripeptides… CONTINUE READING
