Laccase-mediated reactions ? mechanism and biotechnology applications
Languages of publication
Laccases catalyze oxidative conversion of a broad range of substrates such as phenols or lignin-derivatives. They also have an ability to induce oxidative coupling reactions of the free radical intermediates to related phenolic structures. The application of laccases-mediated coupling reactions in white biotechnology represents a promising alternative to chemical synthesis of products of commercial importance. The goal of this review was to present potential application of fungal laccases, focusing specifically on their use as biocatalysts in environmental friendly synthesis of new molecules.
