We previously cloned a laccase-coding genefrom a cDNA library of the Royal Sun medicinal mushroom, Agaricus brasiliensis. However, our efforts to yield the wild-typelaccase was unsuccessful probably due to its instability. Therefore, in thisstudy, we tried to improve the stability of the laccase by the ancestral designmethod. The designed laccase was successfully yielded by a Pichia pastoris secretoryexpression system and then purified. Thermal stability measurements of thepurified laccase showed that the protein is nicely thermostable; its half-lifeat 70ºC is almost 70 min. The half-inactivationtemperature of the protein after heat-treatment for 10 min is higher than 80ºC. The kinetic properties are reasonably similarto those of a laccase from a closely related species, A. bisporus. We also found that the designed laccase can catalyze the polymerization of severalmonomeric polyphenols.
