  "abstract": "<p>Laccases (LCs) are multicopper oxidases that find application as versatile biocatalysts<br>\nfor the green bioremediation of environmental pollutants and xenobiotics. In this study we<br>\nelucidate the degrading activity of Lac2 pure enzyme form Pleurotus pulmonarius towards aflatoxin<br>\nB1 (AFB1) and M1 (AFM1). LC enzyme was purified using three chromatographic steps and<br>\nidentified as Lac2 through zymogram and LC-MS/MS. The degradation assays were performed<br>\nin vitro at 25 C for 72 h in buffer solution. AFB1 degradation by Lac2 direct oxidation<br>\nwas 23%. Toxin degradation was also investigated in the presence of three redox mediators,<br>\n(2,20-azino-bis-[3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid]) (ABTS) and two naturally-occurring phenols,<br>\nacetosyringone (AS) and syringaldehyde (SA). The direct effect of the enzyme and the mediated<br>\naction of Lac2 with redox mediators univocally proved the correlation between Lac2 activity and<br>\naflatoxins degradation. The degradation of AFB1 was enhanced by the addition of all mediators at<br>\n10 mM, with AS being the most effective (90% of degradation). AFM1 was completely degraded by<br>\nLac2 with all mediators at 10 mM. The novelty of this study relies on the identification of a pure<br>\nenzyme as capable of degrading AFB1 and, for the first time, AFM1, and on the evidence that the<br>\nmechanism of an effective degradation occurs via the mediation of natural phenolic compounds.<br>\nThese results opened new perspective for Lac2 application in the food and feed supply chains as a<br>\nbiotransforming agent of AFB1 and AFM1.</p>",
