Consumption of Triazine Herbicide Atrazine by Laccase-positive and Laccase-negative Strains of Soil Fungus Mycelia sterilia INBI 2-26

Abstract

Asporogenic fungus Mycelia sterilia INBI 2-26 isolated from tropical soils with high residual dioxin content (as a result of Agent Orange defoliant treatment during the Vietnamese–American war) and capable of atrazine decomposition was treated to obtain protoplasts. This technique resulted in isolation of laccase-positive and laccase-negative clones… (More)
