Cyanate and its derivatives are considered as highly dangerous materials that threaten human health and environment. Cyanate arises from both natural resources and anthropogenic activities including various chemical industries, herbicide production, and mining wastewater. Despite its toxicity, cyanate is considered as an important nitrogen (N) source in marine ecosystems. Cyanase (CYN) catalyzes the decomposition of cyanate into CO2 and NH3 in a bicarbonate-dependent reaction. In marine… CONTINUE READING
