Redox-mediated decolorization of synthetic dyes by fungal laccases

  author={Harald Claus and Gerard Faber and Hanna Koenig},
  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
Laccases from the lignin-degrading basidiomycetes Trametes versicolor, Polyporus pinisitus and the ascomycete Myceliophthora thermophila were found to decolorize synthetic dyes to different extents. Differences were attributed to the specific catalytic properties of the individual enzymes and to the structure of the dyes. Due to their higher oxidative capacities, the laccases from the two basidiomycetes decolorized dyes more efficiently than that of the ascomycete. The azo dye Direct Red 28… CONTINUE READING
