Trametes sp. M23, isolated from biosolids compost was found to decompose humic acids (HA). A low N (LN) medium (C/N, 53) provided suitable conditions for HA degradation, whereas in a high N (HN) medium (C/N, 10), HA was not degraded. In the absence of Mn2+, HA degradation was similar to that in Mn2+-containing medium. In contrast, MnP activity was significantly affected by Mn2+. Laccase activity exhibited a negative correlation to HA degradation, while LiP activity was not detected. Thus… CONTINUE READING
