Background
Despite claims as key enzymes in enzymatic delignification, very scarce information on the reaction rates between the ligninolytic versatile peroxidase (…) more

Ligninolytic peroxidases are involved in natural wood decay in strict acid environments. Despite their biotechnological interest, these high-redox potential enzymes are not functional at basic pH due to the loss of calcium ions that affects their structural (…) more

We report here the draft genome sequence of the chloroperoxidase (EC 1.11.1.10)-producing ascomycete Caldariomyces fumago. Its genome was assembled into 511 contigs with a total size of 25 Mb. The G+C content is 51.4%, and 9,806 putative (…) more

In Nature, powerful oxidative enzymes secreted by white rot fungi and some bacteria catalyze lignin depolymerization and some microbes are able to catabolize the resulting aromatic compounds as carbon and energy sources. Taken together, these two processes (…) more
