Interesting Use of the Oxyrase® Enzyme System - #1 (TNT Disposal)

From time to time we observe novel and interesting ways that Oxyrase® is used.  Perusing the published literature on Google Scholar one can get lost in the citations for a product like the Oxyrase® Enzyme System.

Did you know that Oxyrase® was used to dispose of TNT?  

It sure was.  In the late 90's a series of experiments was conducted looking at using enzymes to degrade and dispose of the explosive Trinitrotoluene or more specifically, 2,4,6-trinitrotolune, better known as "TNT".  You can download the published findings of the project here:
