Catalytic mechanism and structural determinants of oxidases, peroxidases and oxygenases for biotechnological and environmental processes

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research project is aimed at consolidating a national network started with PRIN 2007 to study oxidases, peroxidases and oxygenases that exploit the most widespread enzymatic mechanism in all living forms and capable of catalysing the oxidation of a wide variety of aromatic compounds using electron acceptors. The study focuses on increasing the knowledge on these classes of enzymes, unmasking their structure-function relationships with the final goal of using these systems as green tools for biotechnological applications. In fact their real exploitation demands for industrial-scale production requires more stable and active enzymes. This goal is unlikely to be realised with native systems, whereas it is reasonable to be achieved with mutated betterperforming enzymes.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
