Results. Successful production of active enzymes was attained, with spectral characteristics of high-spin class-II peroxidases. Recombinant Pr-MnP3 demonstrated high affinity to Mn2+, which was noticeably affected by single (D186H/N) and double (E40H+E44H) mutations. Without addition of Mn2+, Pr-MnP3 was able to oxidize ABTS and decolorize Reactive Blue 5. Pc-LiPH8, its Trp-radical site variants, and engineered CiP-LiP demonstrated conversion of veratryl alcohol and dimeric non-phenolic lignin-model compounds (arylglycerol-β-aryl ethers) with production of veratraldehyde, which is evidence for cation radical formation with subsequent Cα-Cβ cleavage. Pc-LiPH8 and CiP variants were able to effectively oxidize and convert the phenolic dimer (guaiacylglycerol-β–guaiacyl ether).
Conclusion. Our results demonstrate suitability of engineered MnP and LiP peroxidases for dye-decolorizing, and efficiency of LiP and its variants for activation and degradation of phenolic and non-phenolic lignin-like aryl ether-linked compounds.
