Oxidation of persistent environmental pollutants by a white rot fungus.
TLDR
Model studies suggest that the ability of Phanerochaete chrysosporium to metabolize these compounds is dependent on the extracellular lignin-degrading enzyme system of this fungus. Expand
Biodegradation of azo and heterocyclic dyes by Phanerochaete chrysosporium
Biodegradation of Orange II, Tropaeolin O, Congo Red, and Azure B in cultures of the white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, was demonstrated by decolarization of the culture medium, theExpand
Biodegradation of pentachlorophenol by the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium
TLDR
Biodegradation of PCP was decreased in nutrient nitrogen-sufficient cultures of P. chrysosporium, suggesting that in addition to the lignin-degrading system, another degradation system may also be responsible for some of the PCP degradation observed. Expand
Biodegradation of DDT [1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)ethane] by the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium
  • J. Bumpus, S. Aust
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Applied and environmental microbiology
  • 1 September 1987
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the pathway for DDT degradation in P. chrysosporium is clearly different from the major pathway proposed for microbial or environmental degradation of DDT. Expand
Biodegradation of crystal violet by the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium
  • J. Bumpus, B. Brock
  • Medicine, Chemistry
  • Applied and environmental microbiology
  • 1 May 1988
TLDR
The finding that substantial degradation of crystal violet also occurred in nonligninolytic (nitrogen-sufficient) cultures of P. chrysosporium is suggested, suggesting that in addition to the lignin-degrading system, another mechanism exists in this fungus which is also able to degrade crystal violet. Expand
Biodegradation of TNT (2,4,6-trinitrotoluene) by Phanerochaete chrysosporium
TLDR
Results suggest that the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium may be useful for the decontamination of sites in the environment contaminated with TNT. Expand
Biodegradation of polycyclic hydrocarbons by Phanerochaete chrysosporium
  • J. Bumpus
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Applied and environmental microbiology
  • 1 January 1989
TLDR
The ability of the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium to degrade polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that are present in anthracene oil was demonstrated and it is suggested that this microorganism may be useful for the decontamination of sites in the environment contaminated with PAHs. Expand
Lignin peroxidase H2 from Phanerochaete chrysosporium: purification, characterization and stability to temperature and pH.
TLDR
The wood-destroying fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium secretes extracellular enzymes known as lignin peroxidases that are involved in the biodegradation of lign in and a number of environmental pollutants, and the suitability of these enzymes for industrial applications is discussed. Expand
Comparative biodegradation of alkyl halide insecticides by the white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium (BKM-F-1767)
The ability of Phanerochaete chrysosporium to degrade six alkyl halide insecticides (aldrin, dieldrin, heptachlor, chlordane, lindane, and mirex) in liquid and soil-corncob matrices was compared byExpand
