Under secondary metabolic conditions the white rot basidiomycete Phanerochaete chrysosporium mineralizes 2,4-dichlorophenol (I). The pathway for the degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol (I) was elucidated by the characterization of fungal metabolites and of oxidation products generated by purified lignin peroxidase and manganese peroxidase. The multistep pathway involves the oxidative dechlorination of 2,4-dichlorophenol (I) to yield 1,2,4,5-tetrahydroxybenzene (VIII). The intermediate 1,2,4,5… CONTINUE READING
