A nylon-degrading enzyme found in the extracellular medium of a ligninolytic culture of the white rot fungus strain IZU-154 was purified by ion-exchange chromatography, gel filtration chromatography, and hydrophobic chromatography. The characteristics of the purified protein (i.e., molecular weight, absorption spectrum, and requirements for 2,6-dimethoxyphenol oxidation) were identical to those of manganese peroxidase, which was previously characterized as a key enzyme in the ligninolytic… CONTINUE READING
