Versatile peroxidase (VP) secreted by white-rot fungi is involved in the degradation of lignin within land ecosystems. With a broad substrate scope and minor requirements, VP is an extremely attractive blueprint to be designed by the directed evolution tool-box. In recent years, improved VP variants have been generated that meet industrial requirements in terms of improved heterologous functional expression and activity, as well as stability at high temperatures or in the presence of strong inhibitors. This review describes the making of VP by directed evolution, addressing the most important findings and challenges that were faced, along with the future prospects for this research field.
