Degradation of 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) by brown-rot fungi.
Twelve species of brown-rot fungi (BRF) have been investigated for their ability to degrade 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT). In potato dextrose broth (PDB) medium, GloeophyllumExpand

Application of mushroom waste medium from Pleurotus ostreatus for bioremediation of DDT-contaminated soil
The ability of spent mushroom waste (SMW) from Pleurotus ostreatus to degrade 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) was investigated. DDT was degraded by 48% during a 28 d incubationExpand

Direct ethanol production from cellulosic materials by the hypersaline-tolerant white-rot fungus Phlebia sp. MG-60.
White-rot fungus Phlebia sp. MG-60 was identified as a good producer of ethanol from several cellulosic materials containing lignin. When this fungus was cultured with 20 g/L unbleached hardwoodExpand

Integrated delignification and simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of hard wood by a white-rot fungus, Phlebia sp. MG-60.
We propose a new process of unified aerobic delignification and anaerobic saccharification and fermentation of wood by a single microorganism, the white-rot fungus Phlebia sp. MG-60. This fungus isExpand

Novel metabolic pathways of organochlorine pesticides dieldrin and aldrin by the white rot fungi of the genus Phlebia.
White rot fungi can degrade a wide spectrum of recalcitrant organic pollutants, including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In this experiment, 20 whiteExpand

Aerobic Mineralization of Hexachlorobenzene by Newly Isolated Pentachloronitrobenzene-Degrading Nocardioides sp. Strain PD653
ABSTRACT A novel aerobic pentachloronitrobenzene-degrading bacterium, Nocardioides sp. strain PD653, was isolated from an enrichment culture in a soil-charcoal perfusion system. The bacterium alsoExpand

Phylogenetical approach to isolation of white-rot fungi capable of degrading polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin
A degradation experiment on PCDDs and phylogenetical analyses were carried out on newly isolated 2,7-dichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,7-diCDD)-degrading white-rot fungi, strains BMC3014, BMC9152, andExpand

A novel metabolic pathway for biodegradation of DDT by the white rot fungi, Phlebia lindtneri and Phlebia brevispora
Abstract1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT) was used as the substrate for a degradation experiment with the white rot fungi Phlebia lindtneri GB-1027 and Phlebia brevispora TMIC34596,Expand

Degradation of endosulfan and endosulfan sulfate by white-rot fungus Trametes hirsuta
Endosulfan, an organochlorine insecticide, and its metabolite endosulfan sulfate are persistent in environments and are considered toxic. We investigate the possible nontoxic bioremediation ofExpand
