The objectives of this work were to begin developing an experimental system for studying the demethylation of lignin by brown-rot fungi and to examine the influence of selected culture parameters. As substrate for demethylation, we used partially 3-O-demethylated lignin that had been isolated earlier from brown-rotted spruce wood; we remethylated with14CH3I, giving a lignin with both [3-14C]methoxyl and [4-14C]methoxyl groups. This lignin was added to pine wood flakes, which were incubated with… CONTINUE READING
