Title
Characterization of a laccase gene from the white-rot fungi Trametes sp. 5930 isolated from Shennongjia Nature Reserve in China and studying on the capability of decolorization of different synthetic dyes
Abstract

Laccase belongs to a family of multi-copper oxidases which is especially useful for biotechnological and industrial applications. A laccase-producing white-rot fungi strain designated as Trametes sp. 5930 was nearly isolated from Shennongjia Nature Reserve in China. Trametes sp. 5930 had the high yield of laccase and was capable of decolorizing different dyes efficiently. Laccase played a very important role in the decolorization of different dyes by this fungus. The laccase gene lac5930-1 and its corresponding full-length cDNA were then cloned and characterized from Trametes sp. 5930. The 1563 bp full-length cDNA of lac5930-1 encoded a mature laccase protein consisting of 499 amino acids preceded by a signal peptide of 21 amino acids. lac5930-1 gene was successfully expressed in Pichia pastoris, which verified the function of lac5930-1 encoding active laccase by means of gene expression. The recombinant laccase produced by the yeast transformant in which lac5930-1 was efficiently expressed, conferred the ability to decolorize different dyes. The capability of decolorizing different dyes was positively related to the laccase activity, which provided strong evidence for the important function of laccase used in decolorizing industrial dyes.

► Trametes sp. 5930 was isolated from the virgin forest of Shennongjia Nature Reserve in China. ► The laccase gene lac5930-1 and its corresponding full-length cDNA were cloned and characterized. ► lac5930-1 gene was successfully expressed in the heterologous Pichia pastoris system. ► The capability of decolorizing different dyes was positively related to the laccase activity.
