MetaCyc Enzyme: manganese peroxidase 1

Gene: MNP1 Accession Number: G-10927 (MetaCyc)

Species: Phanerochaete chrysosporium

The manganese peroxidase (MnP) from the lignin-degrading fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium, a hydrogen peroxide-dependent heme enzyme, oxidizes a variety of organic compounds but only in the presence of Mn2+. The enzyme binds 2 calcium ions, a B-type heme per subunit, and one Mn2+ ion.

The actual role of the enzyme is to oxidize the bound Mn2+ ion to Mn+3 in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. The product, Mn+3, is released from the active site if various bidentate chelators are available to stabilize it against disproportionation to Mn2+ and insoluble Mn4+. The physiological chelator is thought to be oxalate, an extracellular metabolite of many white rot fungi [Kuan93].

It is the complexed Mn+3 ion, not the enzyme, that oxidizes lignin and other organic substrates [Glenn86]. The purpose of this design is likey to transfer the oxidizing power of the manganese peroxidase to a small agent (the Mn+3 ion) that can diffuse into the lignified cell wall and attack it from within.

The MNP1 gene has been cloned and characterized [Pribnow89, Godfrey90], and the crystal structure of the protein has been determined.[Sundaramoorthy94, Sundaramoorthy97].

Analysis of the P. chrysosporium genome has shown that it encodes five MnPs [Martinez04].
