Degradation of veratric acid and other lignin-related aromatic compounds by the white-rot fungus Pycnoporus cinnabarinus


Metabolism of veratric acid and other aromatic compounds has been studied in two strains of Pycnoporus cinnabarinus. In non-agitated cultures which contained cellulose as an additional carbon source, veratric acid was demeth(ox)ylated to vanillic acid which accumulated in the medium. Under these conditions, 14CO2 evolution from [4-O14CH3]-veratric acid… (More)
