An enzyme capable of cleaving catechin was present in the mycelium ofCheatomium cupreum. Maximum synthesis of the enzyme occurred after 15 days growth. Sucrose and maltose increased enzyme synthesis among the carbon sources tested. Catechol, protocatechuic acid and phloroglucinol carboxylic acid were the intermediates of catechin degradation.Cheatomium cupreum containedmeta-cleaving enzymes for catechol and protocatechuic acid metabolism. Pyruvate was identified as an end-product. Catechin… 
Use of fungal enzymes to study the degradation of specific plant polyphenols
A fraction of procyanidin (PC) was purified from the cider apple and used as the sole carbon source in order to evaluate the potency of different filamentous fungi to grow and degrade them. Fiftegn
Cloning of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus chromosomal region involved in catechin degradation.
TLDR
High performance thin layer chromatography confirmed protocatechuic acid and phloroglucinol carboxylic acid as cleavage products of catechin in A. calcoaceticus and the catechine degrading ability of the clones.
Enzymatic activity of cell-free extracts from Burkholderia oxyphila OX-01 bio-converts (+)-catechin and (−)-epicatechin to (+)-taxifolin
TLDR
The results suggest that the OX-01 may have evolved to target both (+)-catechin and (−)-epicatechin, which are major structural units in plants.
Biochemical Characterization of Microbials and Their Effects on the Growth and Yield of Multiplier Onion (Allium ascalonicum L.) in Northwestern Philippines
TLDR
The results suggest that treatments supplying inorganic fertilizers and microbials or organic fertilizer andmicrobials in combination generated a significant bulb yield response over the control.
Integrating metabolomics and targeted gene expression to uncover potential biomarkers of fungal/oomycetes-associated disease susceptibility in grapevine
TLDR
The leaf metabolic composition of eleven Vitis genotypes was analysed using an untargeted metabolomics approach and for the first time that metabolic constitutive biomarkers are proposed, opening new insights into plant selection on breeding programs.

TLDR
Dl-mandelate elicits immediate synthesis at a steady rate of the first two enzymes of the pathway, but two enzymes which act below the level of benzoate are synthesized only after a considerable lag, and Succinate and asparagine do not significantly repress the synthesis of the enzymes responsible for mandelate oxidation.

TLDR
Experiments with the blocked mutants showed that benzoylformate, the third intermediate of the pathway, acts as an inducer without prior conversion to mandelate, and that there is no inducible, concentrating permease forMandelate.
