Laccase Properties, Reaction Mechanisms and Applications: An Overview


Laccases are multi-copper oxidase enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of a broad range of chemical substrates while reducing O2 directly to water. They are typically found in fungal organisms and plants, and are part of the ligninolitic consortium together with other oxidative enzymes that degrade lignin. This book provides new research on the applications, investigations and research insights on laccase.
