An innovative approach of bioremediation in enzymatic degradation of xenobiotics

This review attempts to deliver knowledge on the role of various enzymes in the biodegradation of xenobiotic pollutants, along with the use of advanced technologies like recombinant DNA technology and Omics approaches to make the process more robust and effective.

Biotransformation of bisphenol F by white-rot fungus Phanerochaete sordida YK-624 under non-ligninolytic condition

Investigation of degradation of BPF under non-ligninolytic conditions showed that BPF could be completely removed after 7-d incubation, and the toxicological studies demonstrated that the order of endocrine-disrupting activity for BPF and its metabolites was HPHB’s>”BPF”> DHBP”.

Lessons From Insect Fungiculture: From Microbial Ecology to Plastics Degradation

It is proposed to look for inspiration in the charismatic fungal-growing insects to understand multipartite degradation of plant polymers and suggest multidisciplinary strategies to identify microbial degraders, degrading enzymes and pathways, as well as microbial interactions and interdependencies.

Potential Fungi Isolated From Anti-biodegradable Chinese Medicine Residue to Degrade Lignocellulose

This work aimed to identify the fungal strains that efficiently biodegrade anti-biodegradable residue and see the possibility to improve the biodegradation of it and other agricultural wastes by co-cultivating these fungi.

White Rot Fungi Produce Novel Tire Wear Compound Metabolites and Reveal Underappreciated Amino Acid Conjugation Pathways

The first study on fungal biotransformation of the TWCs acetanilide and hexamethoxymethylmelamine and the discovery of the first fungal glutamine-conjugated product highlights the need to investigate amino acid conjugation as an important pathway in biotranformation of contaminants, with implications in other fields including natural products discovery.

Genomic Studies of White-Rot Fungus Cerrena unicolor SP02 Provide Insights into Food Safety Value-Added Utilization of Non-Food Lignocellulosic Biomass

The genome sequence of C. unicolor SP02 was reported by using the Illumina and PacBio 20 platforms to obtain trustworthy assembly and annotation and provided insights into the genetic basis and molecular mechanisms for lignocellulosic degradation.



Recent developments in biodegradation of industrial pollutants by white rot fungi and their enzyme system

This review has tried to cover the latest developments on enzyme systems of WRF, their low molecular mass mediators and their potential use for bioremediation of industrial pollutants.

Characterization of Lignocellulolytic Enzymes from White-Rot Fungi

This review provides a complete overview of the different lignocellulose biomasses and their chemical compositions and a complete list of the white-rot fungi-derived lignOcellulolytic enzymes that have been identified and their molecular structures, mechanism of action in lignosine hydrolysis, and biochemical properties is summarized in detail.

Application of ligninolytic potentials of a white-rot fungus Ganoderma lucidum for degradation of lindane

Lindane-degrading capabilities of G. lucidum GL-2 strain make it a potential candidate for managing lindane bioremediation at contaminated sites, according to the present study.

Biodegradation of lignocellulosics: microbial, chemical, and enzymatic aspects of the fungal attack of lignin.

Broadening the knowledge of lignocellulose biodegradation processes should contribute to better control of wood-decaying fungi, as well as to the development of new biocatalysts of industrial interest based on these organisms and their enzymes.

Oxidation of pharmaceutically active compounds by a ligninolytic fungal peroxidase

Diclofenac and estrogens were completely degraded after only 5–25 min even with a very low VP activity (10 U l−1), and high degradation percentages (80%) were achieved for sulfamethoxazole and naproxen.
