It has recently been reported that Pleurotus pulmonarius secretes a versatile peroxidase that oxidizes Mn2+, as well as different phenolic and nonphenolic aromatic compounds; this enzyme has also been detected in other Pleurotus species and in Bjerkandera species. During culture production of the enzyme, the activity of the main peak was as high as 1,000 U/liter (measured on the basis of the Mn3+-tartrate formation) but this peak was very ephemeral due to enzyme instability (up to 80% of the… CONTINUE READING
