The practice of exposing liquid cultures of the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium to a pure oxygen atmosphere under conditions of nutrient starvation has been widely adopted to induce lignin peroxidase (LiP) synthesis. Transmission electron microscopy was used to examine hyphal cells of carbon-limited cultures that had been exposed to an atmosphere of pure oxygen, and revealed evidence of a major loss in organization of cellular ultrastructure, which may be attributed to oxygen… CONTINUE READING
