Abstract

Peroxidases are well-known biocatalysts produced by all organisms, especially microorganisms, and used in a number of biotechnological applications. The enzyme DypB from the lignin-degrading bacterium Rhodococcus jostii was recently shown to degrade solvent-obtained fractions of a Kraft lignin. In order to promote the practical use, the N246A variant of DypB, named Rh_DypB, was overexpressed in E. coli using a designed synthetic gene: by employing optimized conditions, the enzyme was fully produced as folded holoenzyme, thus avoiding the need for a further time-consuming and expensive reconstitution step. By a single chromatographic purification step, > 100 mg enzyme/L fermentation broth with a > 90% purity was produced. Rh_DypB shows a classical peroxidase activity which is significantly increased by adding Mn 2+ ions: kinetic parameters for H 2 O 2 , Mn 2+ , ABTS, and 2,6-DMP were determined. The recombinant enzyme shows a good thermostability (melting temperature of 63–65 °C), is stable at pH 6–7, and maintains a large part of the starting activity following incubation for 24 h at 25–37 °C. Rh_DypB activity is not affected by 1 M NaCl, 10% DMSO, and 5% Tween-80, i.e., compounds used for dye decolorization or lignin-solubilization processes. The enzyme shows broad dye-decolorization activity, especially in the presence of Mn 2+ , oxidizes various aromatic monomers from lignin, and cleaves the guaiacylglycerol-β-guaiacyl ether (GGE), i.e., the Cα-Cβ bond of the dimeric lignin model molecule of β-O-4 linkages. Under optimized conditions, 2 mM GGE was fully cleaved by recombinant Rh_DypB, generating guaiacol in only 10 min, at a rate of 12.5 μmol/min mg enzyme.
