Extracellular hydroxyl radical ((*)OH) production via quinone redox cycling in Trametes versicolor, grown in a chemically defined medium, was investigated to degrade trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), 1,2,4- and 1,3,5-trichlorobenzene (TCB). The activity of the enzymes catalyzing the quinone redox cycle, quinone reductase and laccase, as well as the rate of (*)OH production, estimated as the formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) from 2-deoxyribose… CONTINUE READING
