Protoplast Fusion between Geotrichum candidium and Phanerochaete chrysosporium to Produce Fusants for Corn Stover Fermentation

Lignin impedes the digestion of corn stover when used as an animal feed. Phanerochaete chrysosporium is an efficient lignindegrader. Geotrichum candidum can be used to produce single-cell protein. In this study, protoplasts of the two fungi were prepared and fused. After screening, one of the fusants, Fusant R1, was selected for corn stover fermentation. It… CONTINUE READING
