Biodegradation of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) by the white-rot basidiomycete Phlebia radiata


Phlebia radiatatransformed 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), as well as its first reduction products, the aminodinitrotoluenes, into 4-hydroxylamino-2,6-dinitrotoluene (4-OHA-2,6-DNT) and 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene (4-A-2,6-DNT). No extracellular peroxidases were involved in this step. The ligninolytic extracellular fluid, assumed to contain peroxidases, did not… (More)
