Laccase (benzenediol: oxygen oxidoreductase, EC 1.10.3.2),belong to the family of blue multicopper oxidases containing enzymes which perform simultaneously, one-electron oxidation of various substrates molecules such as diphenols, methoxy- substituted monophenols and aromatic and aliphatic amines concomitant with the four-electron reduction of molecular oxygen to water (Elshafei et al., 2012).Laccase study was initially started by Yoshida (1883) from the sap of the Japanese laquer tree Rhus vernicifera.
Laccases (benzenediol:oxygen oxidoreductases; EC 1.10.3.2.), multicopper- containing enzymes belonging to the blue oxidases, catalyze reduction of oxygen to water using a range of phenolic compounds [33].
