The white-rot fungus Cerrena unicolor C-139 produced 450 000 U l(-1) of laccase when cultivated in submerged (50 ml) fermentation of wheat bran. Laccase (benzenediol: oxygen oxidoreductase, EC 1.10.3.2.), from C. unicolor C-139 was immobilized covalently on control porosity carrier silica beads. The activity of the immobilized laccase was approximately 15.8 units per gram of silica beads. The pH optimum was between 2.5 and 3.0 for free and immobilized laccase. The immobilization of enzyme… CONTINUE READING
