The gene from the white-rot fungus Trametes versicolor encoding the lignin peroxidase isozyme LP7*1

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The structural gene LPGVI (1463 bp including 6 introns), characterized from the white-rot basidiomycete Trametes versicolor (PRL 572), encodes a 342-residue mature polypeptide of 36.7 kDa, preceded by a 26-residue signal/propeptide. LPGVI is identified as the gene encoding the 43 kDa lignin peroxidase isozyme LP7 as based on the partial amino acid sequence information available. The polypeptide deduced shares 72–74% identity in sequence with other lignin peroxidases and 70% with a manganese (II) peroxidase from T. versicolor.
