Dye-decolorizing peroxidases (DyPs) represent a new class of oxidative enzymes for which the natural substrates are largely unknown. To explore the biocatalytic potential of a DyP, we have studied the substrate acceptance profile of a robust DyP peroxidase, a DyP from Thermobifida fusca (TfuDyP). While previous work established that this bacterial peroxidase is able to act on a few reactive dyes and aromatic sulfides, this work significantly expands its substrate scope towards lignin related compounds, flavors, and various dyes.
