Abstract

Lignin biodegradation occupies a central position in the earth's carbon cycle, because most renewable carbon is either in lignin or in compounds protected by lignin from enzymatic degradation (cellulose and hemicelluloses). Lignin biodegradation is responsible for much of the natural destruction of wood in use, and thus is responsible for substantial… (More)
