Short name: Cu_polyphenol_OxRdtase_Laccase

Family relationships

None.

Description

Laccases are multi-copper oxidoreductases able to oxidise a wide variety of phenolic and non-phenolic compounds and are widely distributed among both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. There are two main active catalytic sites with conserved histidines that are capable of binding four copper atoms [PMID: 16740638].
