ABSTRACT This investigation was undertaken to determine the atrazine degradation by fungal enzyme extracts (FEEs) in a clay-loam soil microcosm contaminated at field application rate (5 μg g−1) and to study the influence of different soil microcosm conditions, including the effect of soil sterilization, water holding capacity, soil pH and type of FEEs used in atrazine degradation through a 24 factorial experimental design. The Trametes maxima–Paecilomyces carneus co-culture extract contained… Expand
Microbial attenuation of atrazine in agricultural soils: Biometer assays, bacterial taxonomic diversity, and catabolic genes.
The data indicate that atrazine metabolism involves multiple microorganisms and cooperative pathways diverging from atrazines metabolites, including Arthrobacter spp. Expand
Biodegradation of atrazine and ligninolytic enzyme production by basidiomycete strains
This study revealed a high potential for atrazine biodegradation among tropical basidiomycete strains and highlighted less explored ligninolytic enzymes and cell-bound mechanisms that could enlighten key aspects of theAtrazine fungal metabolism and the role of the nitrogen in the process. Expand
Bioremediation model for atrazine contaminated agricultural soils using phytoremediation (using Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and a locally adapted microbial consortium
The proposed biological model and methodology developed is useful for atrazine contaminated bioremediation agricultural soils, which can contribute to reduce the effects of agrochemical abuse. Expand
Enhanced Degradation of Atrazine by Soil Microbial Fuel Cells and Analysis of Bacterial Community Structure
The results demonstrate that the mechanism of atrazine degradation in soil MFCs is dependent on bioelectrochemistry rather than on microbial degradation. Expand
Oxidative enzymes activity and hydrogen peroxide production in white-rot fungi and soil-borne micromycetes co-cultures
Fungal co-cultures appear to be advantageous for ligninolytic enzyme (LE) production compared to single fungal strains. The aims of this study were (1) to determine the type of fungal interactions inExpand
Augmenting atrazine and hexachlorobenzene degradation under different soil redox conditions in a bioelectrochemistry system and an analysis of the relevant microorganisms.
It is suggested that soil MFCs can enhance the degradation of atrazine and HCB, and bioelectrochemical reduction was the main mechanism for the pollutants degradation. Expand
Selection of filamentous fungi that are resistant to the herbicides atrazine, glyphosate and pendimethalin
The objective of the present study was to isolate fungi from agricultural soils and evaluate fungal growth in culture medium contaminated with atrazine, glyphosate and pendimethalin. FilamentousExpand
Coculture of white rot fungi enhance laccase activity and its dye decolorization capacity
Fungal cocultures can promote complex interactions that result in physiological and biochemical alterations that favor the synergic and more efficient action of extracellular enzymes such as laccase.Expand
Uptake by rice seedlings and in-plant degradation of atrazine as influenced by the oxidative stress induced by added arsenic or phosphate deficiency
ABSTRACT The uptake and degradation of atrazine (ATR) by rice seedlings (Oryza sativa L.) was investigated with and without arsenate and phosphate nutrient in the cultured solution over a period ofExpand
Bioconversion and Biotransformation Efficiencies of Wild Macrofungi
With the capacity to produce different enzymes, macrofungi are able to efficiently degrade a wide rage of substances, so that, they are used as biodetoxification and bioremediation agents. For theExpand


Decomposition of atrazine by microorganisms isolated from long- term herbicide experiment soil
The results obtained in this study allowed for evaluation of the properties of microorganisms isolated during multi-annual herbicide experiments referring to decomposition of atrazine in soil. ItsExpand
Degradation of atrazine by an acclimatized soil fungal isolate
Results indicated that the microorganism may be useful for remediation of atrazine-contaminated soil. Expand
Atrazine degradation and enzyme activities in an agricultural soil under two tillage systems.
Soil enzyme activities in the upper 5 cm layer under NT were consistently higher than those in the same layer under CT and for both tillage systems enzyme activities also reflected temporal changes during the maize cultivation; however, no consistent effect of the herbicide application was observed.

Atrazine dissipation and its impact on the microbial communities and community level physiological profiles in a microcosm simulating the biomixture of on-farm biopurification system.
It is demonstrated that after successive ATZ applications, the peat based biomixture had a good degradation capacity and robustness from a microbiological point of view to support pesticide degradation. Expand
Impact of Trametes versicolor and Phanerochaete chrysosporium on differential breakdown of pesticide mixtures in soil microcosms at two water potentials and associated respiration and enzyme activity
It is demonstrated that pesticide mixtures are differentially degraded by fungal inoculants and significant extracellular enzymes are produced in soil, even at −2.8 MPa water potential, which suggests that effective bioremediation of xenobiotic mixtures is achievable over a relatively wide water potential range.

Dependence of atrazine degradation on C and N availability in adapted and non-adapted soils
Abstract Atrazine degradation in soil was affected by microbial adaptation and C and N availability. Accelerated atrazine mineralization was observed after repeated applications to a soil underExpand
Trametes versicolor: potential for atrazine bioremediation in calcareous clay soil, under low water availability conditions.
Abstract This study examined the feasibility of Trametes versicolor to actively degrade atrazine (0.5 μg g −1 ) in non-sterile calcareous clay soil (Algarve, Portugal) microcosms for up to 24 weeksExpand
Biodegradation of s-triazine herbicide atrazine by Enterobacter cloacae and Burkholderia cepacia sp. from long-term treated sugarcane-cultivated soils in Kenya
The study showed existence of bacterial strains in different sugarcane-cultivated fields which can use atrazine as a nitrogen source and can be used to enhance the degradation of atrazines in contaminated soils where atrazin is still considered to be recalcitrant. Expand
Enhancement of ligninolytic enzyme activities in a Trametes maxima–Paecilomyces carneus co-culture: Key factors revealed after screening using a Plackett–Burman experimental design
Interaction between indigenous fungi: T. carneus on T. maxima plays an important role in the laccase and MnP enhancement and the nutritional requirements for enzyme improvement in a co-culture system are different from those required for a monoculture system. Expand
