Metabolic function and properties of 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid 1-hydroxylase from Pseudomonas acidovorans.
The enzyme 4-hydroxyphenylacetate, NAD(P)H:oxygen oxidoreductase (1-hydroxylating) (EC 1.14.13 ...; 4-hydroxyphenylacetate 1-monooxygenase; referred to here as 4-HPA 1-hydroxylase) was induced inExpand
Cultivation of bacteria and fungi.
With knowledge of the basic concepts of medium composition and the physical conditions which may limit microbial growth, one can enhance the ability to grow bacteria and fungi in pure culture and toExpand
Lignin biodegradation and transformation
Methane production in Minnesota peatlands.
Rates of methane production in Minnesota peats were studied. Surface (10- to 25-cm) peats produced an average of 228 nmol of CH(4) per g (dry weight) per h at 25 degrees C and ambient pH.Expand
Bioremediation of soils contaminated with explosives.
The large-scale industrial production and processing of munitions such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) over the past 100 years led to the disposal of wastes containing explosives and nitrated organicExpand
Manganese peroxidase of Phanerochaete chrysosporium: Purification☆
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses a method for purification of the manganese peroxidase of P. chrysosporium. It discusses assay methods for manganese. Manganese peroxidase may be assayed usingExpand
Initial-phase optimization for bioremediation of munition compound-contaminated soils.
We examined the bioremediation of soils contaminated with the munition compounds 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine, andExpand
Lignin Degradation by Streptomyces viridosporus: Isolation and Characterization of a New Polymeric Lignin Degradation Intermediate.
A new, quantitatively significant intermediate formed during lignin degradation by Streptomyces viridosporus T7A was isolated and characterized. In Streptomyces-inoculated cultures, the intermediate,Expand
Biotransformations of Manganese
The redox properties of manganese (Mn), make it central to a variety of biological processes and result in significant and often rapid biogeochemical cycling that is mediated by abiotic and bioticExpand
Precipitation of Calcite by Indigenous Microorganisms to Strengthen Liquefiable Soils
Enrichments for indigenous microorganisms capable of hydrolyzing urea in the presence of CaCl2 were performed on potentially liquefiable saturated soils in both the laboratory and in situ. FollowingExpand
