A review is presented related to the biochemistry of lignocellulose transformation. The biodegradation of wood constituents is currently understood as a multienzymatic process with the mediation of small molecules; therefore, this review will focus on the roles of these small molecular compounds and radicals working in concert with enzymes. Wood rotting(More)
BACKGROUND In 1992 the Health Care Financing Administration introduced the Health Care Quality Improvement Program (HCQIP), through which quality improvement projects are conducted in partnership with quality improvement organizations (QIOs), hospitals, health plans, or physicians. An evaluation of HCQIP began in May 1996 in response to the QIOs' request(More)
Manganese peroxidase (MnP) from the ligninolytic basidiomycetes Phlebia radiata and Nematoloma frowardii was found to decompose malonate oxidatively in the absence of H2O2 in a reaction system consisting of the enzyme, sodium malonate and MnCl2. The enzymatic oxidation resulted in a substantial decrease in malonate concentration and the formation of CO2,(More)
The depolymerization of humic acids (HAs) obtained from low-rank coal (lignite) to fulvic acids (FAs) was investigated in a cell-free system (in vitro) using manganese peroxidase (MnP) from the white-rot fungus Clitocybula dusenii b11. MnP was produced in surface cultures of C. dusenii which were induced with manganese (II) ions (Mn2+, 300 microM). The(More)
Web service (WS) orchestration can be considered as a fundamental concept in service-oriented architectures (SOA), as well as in spatial data infrastructures (SDI). In recent years in SOA, advanced solutions were developed, such as realizing orchestrated web services on the basis of already existing more fine-granular web services by using standardized(More)
Different clinical isolates of echovirus 9 are known to vary strikingly with regard to pathogenicity. Prototype strain Hill and strain Barty have previously been shown to differ not only in paralytogenic potency for newborn mice but also in a number of in vitro characteristics related to virus capsid structures. A series of mutants of strain Barty,(More)
The agaric basidiomycete Clitocybula dusenii was used for the production of the extracellular ligninolytic enzyme, manganese (Mn) peroxidase. An immobilization technique is described using cellulose and polypropylene as carrier for the fungal mycelium. High amounts of Mn peroxidase were obtained with agitated cultures of immobilized fungus (up to 3,000 U(More)
Frequencies of the HLA antigens ABC, DR and MT, as well as of the properdin factor alleles were determined in 24 unrelated patients presenting with immune complex mediated idiopathic rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) type II. As in Goodpasture syndrome (RPGN type I with pulmonary hemorrhage), a significant association with the B-cell alloantigen(More)
