Degradation of 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) by brown-rot fungi.
Twelve species of brown-rot fungi (BRF) have been investigated for their ability to degrade 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT). In potato dextrose broth (PDB) medium, GloeophyllumExpand

Application of mushroom waste medium from Pleurotus ostreatus for bioremediation of DDT-contaminated soil
The ability of spent mushroom waste (SMW) from Pleurotus ostreatus to degrade 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (4-chlorophenyl) ethane (DDT) was investigated. DDT was degraded by 48% during a 28 d incubationExpand

Lignin dehydrogenative polymerization mechanism: a poplar cell wall peroxidase directly oxidizes polymer lignin and produces in vitro dehydrogenative polymer rich in β‐O‐4 linkage
An investigation was performed to determine whether lignin dehydrogenative polymerization proceeds via radical mediation or direct oxidation by peroxidases. It was found that coniferyl alcoholExpand

Ganoderol B: a potent α-glucosidase inhibitor isolated from the fruiting body of Ganoderma lucidum.
α-Glucosidase inhibitor has considerable potential as a diabetes mellitus type 2 drug because it prevents the digestion of carbohydrates. The search for the constituents reducing α-glucosidaseExpand

Direct ethanol production from cellulosic materials by the hypersaline-tolerant white-rot fungus Phlebia sp. MG-60.
White-rot fungus Phlebia sp. MG-60 was identified as a good producer of ethanol from several cellulosic materials containing lignin. When this fungus was cultured with 20 g/L unbleached hardwoodExpand

Novel metabolic pathways of organochlorine pesticides dieldrin and aldrin by the white rot fungi of the genus Phlebia.
White rot fungi can degrade a wide spectrum of recalcitrant organic pollutants, including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In this experiment, 20 whiteExpand

Biodegradation of sugarcane bagasse with marine fungusPhlebia sp. MG-60
A marine fungus,Phlebia sp. MG-60, and three white-rot fungi were incubated with whole sugarcane bagasse (WSB). The residual lignin content and holocellulose content in the decayed WSB wereExpand

The production of β-glucosidases by Fusarium proliferatum NBRC109045 isolated from Vietnamese forest
Fusarium proliferatum NBRC109045 is a filamentous fungus isolated from Vietnamese forest due to high production of β-glucosidases. Production of the enzyme was studied on varied carbon source basedExpand
