Laccases: sources and their environmental application

Vinit Kumar, Preeti Sonkar*

Abstract


Pollution increased day by day, laccase are an oxido reductases enzyme which play a significant role in remediation. Production of laccase has sink from plant, fungi, bacteria, and insect etc. Present study on their use in several industrial applications, includes dye decolourization, detoxification of environmental pollutants and revalorization of wastes and wastewaters etc. Here we provide a brief discussion of this interesting group of enzymes, increased knowledge of which will promote laccase based industrial processes in future.

Keywords


Laccase; Biodegradation and Bioremediation; Decolorization.
