Malachite green decolorization by the filamentous fungus Myrothecium roridum--Mechanistic study and process optimization.
The results demonstrate that M. roridum IM 6482 may be used effectively as an alternative to traditional decolorization agents and data from antimicrobial tests showed that MG toxicity decreased afterDecolorization, and the effects of operational parameters were examined. Expand
Emulsifier production by steroid transforming filamentous fungus Curvularia lunata. Growth and product characterization.
Curvularia lunata IM 2901, the filamentous fungus used for hydrocortisone manufacture, was found to be able to produce an extracellular emulsifying agent on water-soluble compounds with a yield ofExpand
The effect of cell wall components on glycine-enhanced sterol side chain degradation to androstene derivatives by mycobacteria
Abstractβ-Sitosterol side chain degradation by Mycobacterium sp. NRRL MB 3683 results in the formation of androstene derivatives and is increased in the presence of glycine. As the sterolExpand
Malachite green decolorization by non-basidiomycete filamentous fungi of Penicillium pinophilum and Myrothecium roridum
LC/MS/MS analyses of the intermediate compounds produced during decolorization of MG suggested that in both fungi biodegradation of MG involved reduction to leucomalachite green and conversion to N-demethylated metabolites. Expand
Effect of Nickel on Membrane Integrity, Lipid Peroxidation and Fatty Acid Composition in Wheat Seedlings
Modification of fatty acid profile in Ni-treated wheat seedlings is partly related to lipid peroxidation and increased electrolyte leakage and may reflect damage of cells caused by the metal. Expand
Thiamine in Schizosaccharomyces pombe: dephosphorylation, intracellular pool, biosynthesis and transport
The thiamine metabolism in Schizosaccharomyces pombe is investigated and it is shown thatThiamine-repressible acid phosphate, coded for by the gene pho4, dephosphorylates thiamines phosphates indicating that the enzyme acts as a Thiamine phosphate phosphatase. Expand
Concurrent corticosteroid and phenanthrene transformation by filamentous fungus Cunninghamella elegans
The obtained results suggest a presence of connections between steroid hydroxylases and enzymes involved in PAH degradation in C. elegans. Expand
Bacterial elimination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heavy metals
The elimination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), in the presence and absence of heavy metals by bacteria isolated from a contaminated area of Poland was examined. Among fifty four isolatesExpand
Biodegradation of 4-n-nonylphenol by the non-ligninolytic filamentous fungus Gliocephalotrichum simplex: a proposal of a metabolic pathway.
The metabolic pathway of 4-n-NP biodegradation, which is based on subsequent C1 removals from the alkyl chain followed by the aromatic ring cleavage, is proposed and suggests the existence of a novel mechanism of 5-Nonylphenols degradation in fungi. Expand
Degradation and toxicity reduction of the endocrine disruptors nonylphenol, 4-tert-octylphenol and 4-cumylphenol by the non-ligninolytic fungus Umbelopsis isabellina.
This is the first report demonstrating that a microorganism is capable of effective 4-CP elimination, and indicates that U. isabellina has potential in the degradation and detoxification of contaminants with endocrine activity. Expand
