Induction of aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase inNeurospora crassa by benzo (α) pyrene


WhenNeurospora crassa is grown on a minimal medium with sucrose as the carbon source, aryl hydrocarbon [benzo(α)pyrene] hydroxylase is induced in the presence of low concentrations of benzo(α)pyrene. Benzo(α)pyrene, a potent precarcinogen, is taken up readily by the growing mycelium and is metabolized by the intracellular enzymes to yield hydroxylated… (More)
