Oxalate is produced by numerous wood-degrading fungi. Our studies here show that the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium produces extracellular oxalate under conditions that induce synthesis of the ligninolytic system. Little or no oxalate was detected in cultures grown under high nutrient nitrogen or carbon. This extracellular oxalate was identified and quantitated by HPLC. Its identity was further substantiated by its decomposition by the enzyme oxalate oxidase. The oxalate content… CONTINUE READING
