ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Manganese peroxidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Mn-dependent peroxidase.
Reaction catalysed
2 Mn(2+) + 2 H(+) + H(2)O(2) <=> 2 Mn(3+) + 2 H(2)O
  • The enzyme from white rot basidiomycetes is involved in the oxidative degradation of lignin.
  • The enzyme oxidizes a bound Mn(2+) ion to Mn(3+) in the presence of hydrogen peroxide.
  • The product, Mn(3+), is released from the active site in the presence of a chelator (mostly oxalate and malate) that stabilizes it against disproportionation to Mn(2+) and insoluble Mn(4+).
  • The complexed Mn(3+) ion can diffuse into the lignified cell wall, where it oxidizes phenolic components of lignin and other organic substrates.
  • It is inactive with veratryl alcohol or nonphenolic substrates.
