The white-rot fungus Trametes pubescens MB 89 has been identified as an outstanding, although not-yet-described, producer of the industrially important enzyme laccase. Extracellular laccase formation could be greatly stimulated by the addition of Cu(II) to a simple, glucose-based culture medium. Using optimum Cu concentrations (1.5–2.0 mM), maximum values for laccase activity of approximately 65 U/ml were obtained. The synthesis of the laccase protein depended on the presence of Cu in the… CONTINUE READING
