    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Carbohydrate oxidases are found in all kingdoms of life but are mostly found in fungi. Their natural role is not always clear. Usage of molecular oxygen as electron acceptor is not a logical choice when the enzyme is part of a catabolic pathway. This chapter provides an overview of the occurrence and properties of carbohydrate oxidases. The physiological role of the different enzymes is discussed in relation to their origin, and the catalytic and structural properties are discussed in relation to their family background. It also provides a summary of the biocatalytic applications of carbohydrate oxidases. Carbohydrate oxidases are valuable enzymes for several applications. They are relatively stable and do not need expensive coenzymes. Carbohydrate oxidases are widely used in diagnostic applications, in the food and drinks industry, and for carbohydrate synthesis. They are also used for bleaching (production of H2O2) and as oxygen scavenger.
