Laccases play a significant role in remedying dye pollutants. Most of these enzymes are originated from terrestrial fungi and bacteria, thus they are not proper to be used in the environments with neutral/alkaline pH, or they may require laborious extraction/purification steps. These limitations can be solved using marine spore laccases through high stability and easy to use application. In the current study, laccase activity of the marine spore -forming Bacillus sp. KC2 was measured according to the guaiacol and syringaldazine oxidation. Abiotic stresses like pH of 6, temperature of 37 °C and 0.3 mM CuSO (in comparison with optimal sporulation conditions: pH of 8, temperature of 20 °C and 0.0 mM CuSO) enhanced laccase formation in sporal coat. Maximum activity of enzyme was observed at 50 °C and pH 7, which did not change in the alkaline pH and temperature range of 20-70 °C. Results indicated ions, inhibitors and solvent stability of the enzyme and its activity were stimulated by Co, Mn, PMSF, acetone, acetonitrile, ethanol, and methanol. The spore laccase could decolorize synthetic dyes from various chemical groups including azo (acid orange, amaranth, trypan blue, congo red, and amido black), indigo (indigo carmine), thiazine (methylene blue, and toluidine blue), and triarylmethane (malachite green) with ABTS/syringaldazine mediators after 5 h. Degradation products were not toxic against Sorghum vulgare and Artemia salina model organisms. The enzyme mediator system showed high potentials for dye bioremediation over a wide range of harsh conditions.

A species of strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaea which lives in geothermally-heated marine sediments. It exhibits heterotropic growth by fermentation or sulfur respiration.
A mediator complex subunit that is believed to play a key role in the coactivation of nuclear receptor-activated transcription by the mediator complex. It interacts with a variety of nuclear receptors including RETINOIC ACID RECEPTORS; THYROID HORMONE RECEPTORS; VITAMIN D RECEPTORS; PEROXISOME PROLIFERATOR-ACTIVATED RECEPTORS; ESTROGEN RECEPTORS; and GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTORS.
A peptide, of about 33 amino acids, secreted by the upper INTESTINAL MUCOSA and also found in the central nervous system. It causes gallbladder contraction, release of pancreatic exocrine (or digestive) enzymes, and affects other gastrointestinal functions. Cholecystokinin may be the mediator of satiety.
A copper-containing oxidoreductase enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of 4-benzenediol to 4-benzosemiquinone. It also has activity towards a variety of O-quinols and P-quinols. It primarily found in FUNGI and is involved in LIGNIN degradation, pigment biosynthesis and detoxification of lignin-derived products.
A large protein complex which acts as a signaling adaptor protein that allows communication between the various regulatory and functional components of GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION including DNA POLYMERASE II; GENERAL TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS; and TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS that are bound to upstream ENHANCER ELEMENTS. The mediator complex was originally studied in YEAST where at least 21 subunits were identified. Many of the yeast subunits are homologs to proteins in higher organisms that are found associated with specific nuclear receptors such as THYROID HORMONE RECEPTORS and VITAMIN D RECEPTORS.
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
