Characterization of Lignocellulolytic Enzymes from White-Rot Fungi

  title={Characterization of Lignocellulolytic Enzymes from White-Rot Fungi},
  author={Tamilvendan Manavalan and Arulmani Manavalan and Klaus Heese},
  journal={Current Microbiology},
The development of alternative energy sources by applying lignocellulose-based biofuel technology is critically important because of the depletion of fossil fuel resources, rising fossil fuel prices, security issues regarding the fossil fuel supply, and environmental issues. White-rot fungi have received much attention in recent years for their valuable enzyme systems that effectively degrade lignocellulosic biomasses. These fungi have powerful extracellular oxidative and hydrolytic enzymes… CONTINUE READING
