White-rot fungi and their enzymes for the treatment of industrial dye effluents.
White-rot fungi produce various isoforms of extracellular oxidases including laccase, Mn peroxidase and lignin peroxidase (LiP), which are involved in the degradation of lignin in their naturalExpand

Fungal laccase: properties and activity on lignin
The sources of ligninocellulose that occur in various forms in nature are so vast that they can only be compared to those of water. The results of several, more recent experiments showed that laccaseExpand

TolC is involved in enterobactin efflux across the outer membrane of Escherichia coli.
Escherichia coli excretes the catecholate siderophore enterobactin in response to iron deprivation. While the mechanisms underlying enterobactin biosynthesis and ferric enterobactin uptake andExpand

Interaction of heavy metals with the sulphur metabolism in angiosperms from an ecological point of view.
The metabolism of sulphur in angiosperms is reviewed under the aspect of exposure to ecologically relevant concentrations of sulphur, heavy metals and metalloids. Because of the inconsistent use ofExpand

Fungi in freshwaters: ecology, physiology and biochemical potential.
Research on freshwater fungi has concentrated on their role in plant litter decomposition in streams. Higher fungi dominate over bacteria in terms of biomass, production and enzymatic substrateExpand

Decolorization, cytotoxicity, and genotoxicity reduction during a combined ozonation/fungal treatment of dye-contaminated wastewater.
In view of compliance with increasingly stringent environmental legislation imposed by regional, national, and supranational (e.g., European Union) authorities, innovative environmental technologiesExpand

The use of the aquatic moss Fontinalis antipyretica L. ex Hedw. as a bioindicator for heavy metals: 3. Cd2+ accumulation capacities and biochemical stress response of two Fontinalis species.
We studied heavy metal stress responses of two Fontinalis species, F. antipyretica and F. dalecarlica, collected from two habitats in Germany and Canada. The capacities of the two species forExpand

Degradation of dye-containing textile effluent by the agaric white-rot fungus Clitocybula dusenii
Raw mixed-dye wastewater from a textile dye-producing plant was partly decolorized by the agaric white-rot fungus, Clitocybula dusenii. The fungus had higher Mn peroxidase (MnP) and laccaseExpand

Physiological characterization of cadmium-exposed Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a common model organism for investigation of metal stress. This green alga produces phytochelatins in the presence of metal ions. The influence of cadmium is of mainExpand

Sulphate assimilation under Cd2+ stress in Physcomitrella patens--combined transcript, enzyme and metabolite profiling.
Cd(2+) causes disturbance of metabolic pathways through severe damage on several levels. Here we present a comprehensive study of Cd(2+)-mediated effects on transcript, enzyme and metabolite levelsExpand
