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
Biogenic nanosilver synthesized in Metarhizium robertsii waste mycelium extract – As a modulator of Candida albicans morphogenesis, membrane lipidome and biofilm
Suitability of the “green synthesis” method to produce silver nanoparticles with therapeutic potential against fungal infections is confirmed, as AgNPs decreased adhesion of yeast to abiotic surfaces, as well as acted synergistically with FLC against sessile population. 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
Ametryn removal by Metarhizium brunneum: Biodegradation pathway proposal and metabolic background revealed.
The metabolomics data demonstrated that the presence of ametryn in the fungal culture induced oxidative stress and serious disruptions of the carbon and nitrogen metabolism, providing deeper insights into the microorganism strategy for xenobiotic biodegradation which may result in future enhancements to ametryN removal by the tested strain.

Structural identification of lipopeptide biosurfactants produced by Bacillus subtilis strains grown on the media obtained from renewable natural resources.
The obtained data indicate that the waste composition has an influence on both the types and amounts of biosurfactants produced by studied B. subtilis strains. Expand
Detection of biosurfactants in Bacillus species: genes and products identification
To screen environmental Bacillus strains for detection of genes encoding the enzymes involved in biosurfactant synthesis and to evaluate their products e.g. surfactin, iturin and fengycin.
Acceleration of tributyltin chloride (TBT) degradation in liquid cultures of the filamentous fungus Cunninghamella elegans.
The obtained results suggest a cometabolic nature of TBT utilization by C. elegans, and the efficient xenobiotic biodegradation was related to the intensity of fungal growth. Expand
Lipid peroxidation in the fungus Curvularia lunata exposed to nickel
The presented data reveal that the oxidative stress resulting, among others, in membrane lipid peroxidation is involved in the mechanisms of the nickel toxicity towards C. lunata and suggest that this fungus exhibits an ability to cope, to some extent, with the increased level of lipidPeroxides. Expand
Degradation of tributyltin by the filamentous fungus Cunninghamella elegans, with involvement of cytochrome P-450
Cunninghamella elegans degraded tributyltin (TBT) at 20 mg l−1 when grown in Sabouraud medium and growth was inhibited, postulated that the significant resistance of C. elegans to TBT is associated with the capacity of the fungus to metabolise TBT. Expand
Tributyltin chloride interactions with fatty acids composition and degradation ability of the filamentous fungus Cunninghamella elegans
The results suggest that the high TBT resistance in C. elegans is associated with the modulation of the fatty acids composition and the biocide degradation. Expand
