Microscopic fungi producing nitrous oxide in nutrient media and in sterile soil

  title={Microscopic fungi producing nitrous oxide in nutrient media and in sterile soil},
  author={A. Kurakov and O. A. Pakhnenko and N. Kostina and M. M. Umarov},
Different species of soil micromycetes from the classes Deuteromycetes and Ascomycetes were found to produce nitrous oxide under low partial pressure of oxygen and the presence of nitrites in the medium. The emission of nitrous oxide by micromycetes during their development in the soil was first demonstrated. The activity of nitrous oxide produced by fungi was several orders lower than denitrifying bacteria. However, it is realistic to assume that this phenomenon can have environmental… Expand
Nitrous oxide production by fungi in soils under different moisture levels
The production of nitrous oxide (N2O) by facultative anaerobic fungi from the Fusarium, Trichoderma, and Paecylomyces genera was detected. Representatives of the genus Mucorales did not produce N2O.Expand
Nitrous oxide producing activity of diverse fungi from distinct agroecosystems
It is demonstrated that N 2 O-producing fungi were prevalent in the five soil systems and production of N 1 O varied among isolates examined under different imposed abiotic conditions in the laboratory. Expand
Nitrate Reductase and Nitrous Oxide Production by Fusarium oxysporum 11dn1 Under Aerobic and Anaerobic Conditions
The fungus Fusarium oxysporum 11dn1 was found to be able to grow and produce nitrous oxide on nitrate-containing medium in anaerobic conditions and the presence of two nitrate reductases was shown, which differed in molecular mass, location, temperature optima, and activity in nitrates- and ammonium-containing media.

Nitrous oxide productivity of soil fungi along a gradient of cattle impact
Fungi capable of high and moderate transformation rates were predominantly isolated from sections under current or past cattle impact, where they contributed with a maximum of 65% of the total N2O emissions. Expand
The significant contribution of fungi to soil N2O production across diverse ecosystems
Abstract Sporadic observations from pure culture study and direct soil measurement have indicated that fungi can substantially contribute to soil N 2 O production. Yet, it is still uncertain whetherExpand
Phylogenetic, taxonomic and functional diversity of fungal denitrifiers and associated N2O production efficacy
Challenges with assessment of fungal N2O-producing activity across genera are described, prospects for future studies are suggested and species diversity is discussed in order to gain knowledge of important taxonomic and phylogenetic groups mediating N 2O production and provide insight on ecological cues associated with fungalN2O production.

Soil Moisture and pH Control Relative Contributions of Fungi and Bacteria to N2O Production
Soil moisture and pH effects were assessed under 65–90 % water-filled pore space (WFPS) and pH 4.0–9.0, indicating that both fungi and bacteria preferred more anoxic and neutral or slightly alkaline conditions in producing N2O. Expand
Novel P450nor Gene Detection Assay Used To Characterize the Prevalence and Diversity of Soil Fungal Denitrifiers
Novel PCR primers targeting the P450nor gene, encoding the enzyme responsible for the conversion of nitric oxide to N2O, were developed, validated, and used to study the diversity of cultivable fungal denitrifiers. Expand
Cultivable Fungal Diversity in Deep-Sea Sediment of the East Pacific Ocean
Diverse fungi from the deep sea sediments of the East Pacific Ocean are indicated and the involvement of these fungi in denitrification process is highlighted. Expand
Fungal Diversity in Deep Sea Sediments from East Yap Trench and Their Denitrification Potential
Abstract In recent years, the hadal trenches have been recognized as biological hot spots for deep sea researchers. Due to high hydrostatic pressure, low temperatures, high salinity and lowExpand
