Ubiquity of lignin-degrading peroxidases among various wood-degrading fungi.
Phanerochaete chrysosporium is rapidly becoming a model system for the study of lignin biodegradation. Numerous studies on the physiology, biochemistry, chemistry, and genetics of this system haveExpand

Lignin-Degrading Enzymes of the Commercial Button Mushroom, Agaricus bisporus.
Agaricus bisporus, grown under standard composting conditions, was evaluated for its ability to produce lignin-degrading peroxidases, which have been shown to have an integral role in ligninExpand

Biotechnology of Lignin Degradation
Lignin is second only to cellulose in its abundance as a renewable carbon source. Because it serves to protect cellulose from most forms of microbial attack, its biodegradation also serves as the keyExpand

Lignin and veratryl alcohol are not inducers of the ligninolytic system of Phanerochaete chrysosporium.
Phanerochaete chrysosporium is a white rot fungus which secretes a family of lignin-degrading enzymes under nutrient limitation. In this work, we investigated the roles of veratryl alcohol and ligninExpand

The cAMP signal transduction pathway mediates resistance to dicarboximide and aromatic hydrocarbon fungicides in Ustilago maydis.
The cAMP signal transduction pathway mediates the switch between yeast-like and filamentous growth and influences both sexual development and pathogenicity in the smut fungus Ustilago maydis.Expand

Effects of ultraviolet-B radiation on fungal disease development in Cucumis sativus.
Three cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) cultivars were exposed to a daily dose of 11.6 kJ m-2 biologically effective ultraviolet-B (UV-BBE) radiation in an unshaded greenhouse before and/ or afterExpand

Characterization and genetic analysis of laboratory mutants of Ustilago maydis reistant to dicarboximide and aromatic hydrocarbon fungicides
Mutants of Ustilago maydis resistant to dicarboximide (DCOF) and aromatic hydrocarbon fungicides (AHF) were isolated after chemical mutagenesis or by selection of spontaneous mutants onExpand

Assessing the involvement of free radicals in fungicide toxicity using α-tocopherol analogs
Abstract Lipid peroxidation has been implicated as the mode of action of aromatic hydrocarbon and dicarboximide fungicides. Evidence to support this hypothesis includes the antagonism of fungicideExpand

Overproduction of lignin-degrading enzymes by an isolate of Phanerochaete chrysosporium.
Phanerochaete chrysosporium is a white rot fungus which secretes a family of lignin-degrading enzymes under nutrient limitation. PSBL-1 is a mutant of this organism that generates the ligninolyticExpand
