Endo-β-1,3-Glucanase GLU1, from the Fruiting Body of Lentinula edodes, Belongs to a New Glycoside Hydrolase Family†
ABSTRACT The cell wall of the fruiting body of the mushroom Lentinula edodes is degraded after harvesting by enzymes such as β-1,3-glucanase. In this study, a novel endo-type β-1,3-glucanase, GLU1,Expand

Lentinula edodes tlg1 Encodes a Thaumatin-Like Protein That Is Involved in Lentinan Degradation and Fruiting Body Senescence
Lentinan is an antitumor product that is purified from fresh Lentinula edodes fruiting bodies. It is a cell wall component, comprising β-1,3-glucan with β-1,6-linked branches, which becomes degradedExpand

Heterologous expression of lcc1 from Lentinula edodes in tobacco BY-2 cells results in the production an active, secreted form of fungal laccase
Laccase (Lcc) is a lignin-degrading enzyme produced by white-rot fungi and has been the subject of much interest in the field of bioremediation due to its ability to oxidize phenolic compounds. InExpand

Gene silencing of the Lentinula edodes lcc1 gene by expression of a homologous inverted repeat sequence.
Lentinula edodes is one of the most important edible mushrooms, but no method for analyzing its molecular genetics has yet been established. RNA interference (RNAi) is a mechanism that inhibitsExpand

Isolation and characterization of the gene encoding a manganese peroxidase from Lentinula edodes
A genomic DNA sequence and cDNA encoding a putative manganese peroxidase were isolated from the white-rot basidiomycete Lentinula edodes. The gene, called lemnp1, consists of a 1985-bp open readingExpand

Grouping of multicopper oxidases in Lentinula edodes by sequence similarities and expression patterns
The edible white rot fungus Lentinula edodes possesses a variety of lignin degrading enzymes such as manganese peroxidases and laccases. Laccases belong to the multicopper oxidases, which have a wideExpand

Characterization of the post-harvest changes in gene transcription in the gill of the Lentinula edodes fruiting body
We compared the gene expression patterns of Lentinula edodes fresh fruiting bodies and fruiting bodies 3 days after harvest, by suppression subtractive hybridization, to characterize the physiologicExpand

Effective induction of pblac1 laccase by copper ion in Polyporus brumalis ibrc05015.
Polyporus brumalis ibrc05015 is a strain capable of high laccase (Lac) production. Among several inducers, 0.25 mM copper was most effective for Lac production. One of the Lacs induced by copper wasExpand
