In this study, we report an electrochemical microbial biosensor that was made by immobilizing a bacterial laccase on the surface of Escherichia coli cells followed by adsorption of modified live cells onto a glassy-carbon electrode. Expression and surface localization of laccase on target cells were confirmed by Western blotting, flow cytometry assays and immunofluorescence microscopy observation. Increased tandem-aligned anchors with three repeats of the N-terminal domain of an ice nucleation protein were used to construct a highly active E...

Bioinformatics has revealed the presence of putative laccase genes in diverse bacteria, including extremophiles, autotrophs, and, interestingly, anaerobes. Integrity of laccase genes in anaerobes has been questioned, since laccases oxidize a variety of compounds using molecular oxygen as the electron acceptor. The genome of the anaerobe Geobacter metallireducens GS-15 contains five genes for laccase-like multicopper oxidases. In order to show whether one of the predicted genes encodes a functional laccase, the protein encoded by GMET_RS10855 was heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli cells...

Sortase-catalyzed ligations have emerged as powerful tools for the site-specific ligation of peptides and proteins in material science and biocatalysis. In this work, a directed sortase evolution strategy (SortEvolve) has been developed as a general high-throughput screening (HTS) platform to improve activity of sortase A (Application 1) and to perform directed laccase evolution through a semi-purification process in 96-well microtiter plate (MTP) (Application 2). A semi-purification process in polypropylene MTP (PP-MTP) is achieved through the anchor peptide LCI which acts as adhesion promoter...

Small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are heat shock proteins sized 12-43 kDa that can protect proteins from denaturation, particularly under high temperature; sHSPs thus increase the heat tolerance capability of an organisms enabling survival in adverse climates. sHSP20 is overexpressed in Oenococcus oeni in response to low temperatures. However, we found that overexpression of sHSP20 in Escherichia coli BL21 increased the microbial survival ratio at 50 °C by almost 2 h. Adding sHSP20 to the glutamate dehydrogenase solution significantly increased the stability of the enzyme at high temperature (especially at 60-70 °C), low pH values (especially below 6...

Pyomelanin is the major constituent of pigment in melanogenic Aeromonas strains of bacteria. However, eumelanin, synthesized from tyrosine via L-DOPA and polyphenol oxidases (PPOs), may also be present in this genus since L-DOPA is frequently detected in culture fluids of several species. To address this question, we used a deletion mutant of Aeromonas media strain WS, in which pyomelanin synthesis is completely blocked under normal culture conditions. When tyrosine was supplied to the medium, we observed residual melanin accumulation, which we interpret as evidence for existence of the DOPA-melanin pathway...

Biogenic amines degradation by bacterial laccases is little known, so we have cloned and heterologously expressed, in E. coli, a new laccase from Pediococcus acidilactici CECT 5930 (Lpa5930), a lactic acid bacterium commonly found in foods able to degrade tyramine. The recombinant enzyme has been characterized by physical and biochemical assays. Here we report the optimization of expression and purification procedures of this laccase. DNA encoding sequence of laccase from P. acidilactici was amplified by PCR and cloned into the expression plasmid pET28a for induction by isopropyl-β-D-thiogalactoipyranoside...

Laccase is a widely-used environment-friendly copper-containing oxidase found in many plants, insects and fungi. Recently, more and more laccases are also found in bacteria. Myxobacteria are an important bacteria resource. However, myxobacteria are much more difficult to isolate and purify than other bacteria. We used bioinformatic approach to screen myxobacteria proteomes available in NCBI. Based on conserved sequences of four copper binding sites in multicopper oxidase, 30 potential laccase sequences were obtained...

Metagenomics is a powerful tool that allows identifying enzymes with novel properties from the unculturable component of microbiomes. However, thus far only a limited number of laccase or laccase -like enzymes identified through metagenomics has been subsequently biochemically characterized. This work describes the successful bio-mining of bacterial laccase-like enzymes in an acidic bog soil metagenome and the characterization of the first acidobacterial laccase-like multicopper oxidase (LMCO). LMCOs have hitherto been mostly studied in fungi and some have already found applications in diverse industries...

Unrestricted and reckless use of antibiotics has resulted in their accumulation in environment. This, in turn, has led to the emergence of multiple drug-resistant microbes. The present study focuses on degradation of ciprofloxacin (CIP) by an edible white rot fungus Pleurotus ostreatus. Effect of CIP was determined on radial growth and biomass of P. ostreatus. Titrimetric and spectrophotometric assays were carried out to assess the degrading potential of P. ostreatus towards CIP. It was found that CIP has a stimulatory effect on growth and enzyme activity of P...

Laccases are used for the conversion of biomass into fermentable sugars but it is difficult to produce high yields of active laccases in heterologous expression systems. We overcame this challenge by expressing Streptomyces cyaneus CECT 3335 laccase in Escherichia coli (ScLac) and we achieved a yield of up to 104 mg L(-1) following purification by one-step affinity chromatography. Stability and activity assays using simple lignin model substrates showed that the purified enzyme preparation was active over a broad pH range and at high temperatures, suggesting it would be suitable for biomass degradation...

Genome search of Geobacillus thermopakistaniensis, formerly Geobacillus sp. SBS-4S, revealed the presence of an open reading frame (ESU71923) annotated as laccase. However, the gene product did not display any laccase-like activity against the substrates examined. The laccase activity was, therefore, purified from G. thermopakistaniensis cells and N-terminal amino acid residues of the enzyme were determined. These residues matched the N-terminal sequence of an open reading frame annotated as a copper oxidase (ESU72270)...
