IUBMB Comments

A hemoprotein. This ligninolytic peroxidase combines the substrate-specificity characteristics of the two other ligninolytic peroxidases, EC 1.11.1.13, manganese peroxidase and EC 1.11.1.14, lignin peroxidase. Unlike these two enzymes, it is also able to oxidize phenols, hydroquinones and both low- and high-redox-potential dyes, due to a hybrid molecular architecture that involves multiple binding sites for substrates [2,4].

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota

Synonyms
myoglobin, versatile peroxidase, mb peroxidase, versatile peroxidase mnp2, metmb peroxidase, more
