Lignin-solubilizing ability of actinomycetes isolated from termite (Termitidae) gut
Of the assays used, total lignocellulose weight loss was most useful in determining overall bioconversion ability but not in identifying the best lignin-solubilizing strains.
Relationships between the abilities of streptomycetes to decolorize three anthron-type dyes and to degrade lignocellulose
Fourteen Streptomyces strains known to degrade lignocellulose were screened for their ability to decolorize three anthron-type dyes: Remazol Brilliant Blue R (RBBR), blue poly(vinylamine) sulfonate –
Cellulolytic activity of Actinomycetes isolated from termites (Termitidae) gut
Some strains exhibited high cellulase activity, constant for 5–7 days, but inhibition by glucose was a common feature for almost all isolates, and all strains were shown to degrade soluble and insoluble cellulose.
The effects of various nutrients on extracellular peroxidases and acid-precipitable polymeric lignin production byStreptomyces chromofuscus A2 andS. viridosporus T7A
Overall, these findings show that extracellular peroxidases of both Streptomyces ssp.
Evaluation of Rhizobia Genetically Engineered for Pesticide Resistence
There is evidence that many herbicides, applied as seed dressing or as a pre-emergence soil treatment, may interfere with nodulation of legumes by rhizobia. An approach for the relief of such a
Maize production in Italy.
Applications of Genetic Engineering to “Symbiontology” in Agriculture
Symbiosis represents an ancestral form of cell-to-cell interaction, often offering the partnership unique adaptations to environmental conditions, and tends to be disrupted or become inappropriate for the new food, feed, and energy demands.
