Oxidoreductases on their way to industrial biotransformations
What is it about?
Recent advances on fungal oxidoreductases for a bio-based economy are reviewed. These include computer-aided rational design and directed evolution of biocatalysts. Classical oxidoreductases consist of peroxidases/oxidases involved in lignin decay. Oxidative flavoenzymes are emerging biocatalysts. Peroxygenases and polysaccharide monooxygenases were more recently discovered. Reviewed transformations consider both oxyfunctionalization and oxidation reactions.
Why is it important?
Development of industrial biocatalysts is of eminent importance for a bio-based economy.
