Characterization of the Penicillium chrysogenum antifungal protein PAF
The filamentous fungus Penicillium chrysogenum abundantly secretes the small, highly basic and cysteine-rich protein PAF (Penicillium antifungal protein). In this study, the antifungal activity ofExpand

High-yield production of oxalic acid for metal leaching processes by Aspergillus niger.
The complex-forming compound oxalic acid can effectively solubilise metals such as aluminium, iron, lithium and manganese. In order to produce high amounts of oxalic acid for biohydrometallurgicalExpand

Transport of small lons and molecules through the plasma membrane of filamentous fungi.
Less than 1% of the estimated number of fungal species have been investigated concerning the transport of low-molecular-weight nutrients and metabolites through the plasma membrane. This isExpand

Solubilization of zinc oxide from filter dust with Penicillium simplicissimum: bioreactor leaching and stoichiometry
Filter dusts from metal-processing industries contain valuable metals which should be recycled. Some disadvantages of conventional recycling methods can be avoided by applying biohydrometallurgicalExpand

Leaching with Penicillium simplicissimum: Influence of Metals and Buffers on Proton Extrusion and Citric Acid Production.
In the presence of insoluble metal oxides (industrial filter dust, zinc oxide, synthetic mixture of metal oxides), Penicillium simplicissimum developed the ability to excrete considerable amounts ofExpand

Influence of medium components and metabolic inhibitors on citric acid production by Penicillium simplicissimum.
Penicillium simplicissimum excreted more than 100 mmol citric acid l-1 [2.9 mmol (g dry wt)-1; 9 d] if an industrial filter dust (> 50% ZnO) providing a high extracellular buffering capacity wasExpand

Efflux of organic acids in Penicillium simplicissimum is an energy-spilling process, adjusting the catabolic carbon flow to the nutrient supply and the activity of catabolic pathways.
Continuous cultivation was used to study the effect of glucose, ammonium, nitrate or phosphate limitation on the excretion of tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle intermediates by PenicilliumExpand

Extraction of Zinc from Industrial Waste by a Penicillium sp.
Zinc was extracted from a filter residue of a copper works (58.6% zinc) by a Penicillium sp. isolated from a metal-containing location. By isotachophoresis citric acid was identified as the leachingExpand
