A regular scientific seminar was held at IMBB + Photo May 30, 2023 | 16:26 / Seminars

On May 30, the next scientific seminar was held at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies of the Ministry of Science and Education of AR. Firuza Abdullayeva, a junior researcher at the International Laboratory of Molecular Biotechnology, spoke at the seminar on "Production of laccase enzyme in yeast". The enzyme laccase, which belongs to the family of oxidases, has an important role in living organisms. Laccase participates in processes such as iron exchange, metal oxidation, waste separation, sporulation, and lignin decomposition. The laccase enzyme is used in the cosmetic industry as an oxidizing agent, in the removal of dyes from wastewater, and instead of chlorine in the bleaching process. The most studied source of laccase is fungi. This enzyme has the advantages of having a wide range of substrates, cost-effective production, and high availability in industry. The speaker noted that today in all areas of industry, possible ways to save time, reduce workload and costs are being sought, and more research should be done in this direction to improve the modern industry. Extensive discussions were held around the report and Firuza Abdullayeva answered the questions.
