Among the Basidiomycetes the species of the genus Coprinus have black spores and hymenia that, at maturity, are transformed through autodigestion into a black or inky fluid that drops from the pileus and blackens the soil beneath the fruiting structures. The melanins from three different species of Coprinus have been characterized by spectroscopic techniques, including cross-polarization, magic-angle spinning carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance, and chemical and thermal degradations.

Analytical Pyrolysis of the Fungal Melanins from Ochroconis spp. Isolated from Lascaux Cave, France
Analytical pyrolysis is a tool widely used for investigating the nature of macromolecules. This technique has been applied with success for solving the chemical structure of geo- and biopolymers.Expand
Characterization of Fonsecaea pedrosoi melanin.
The constituents of the melanin complex from mycelial forms of Fonsecaea pedrosoi were partially characterized. The pigment was mainly accumulated on large alkali-extractable, electron-denseExpand
The chemical structure of fungal melanins and their possible contribution to black stains in stone monuments
Five fungal melanins extracted either from spores, fruiting bodies or culture media, soluble in alkali and precipitated by acid, were characterized by analytical pyrolysis. These melanin fractionsExpand
Structure of melanins from the fungi Ochroconis lascauxensis and Ochroconis anomala contaminating rock art in the Lascaux Cave
TLDR
Solid-state cross polarization magic-angle spinning 13C and 15N nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic of the melanins extracted from the mycelia of O. lascauxensis and O. anomala showed that the building blocks from the melanin have to be based on other phenols that react with the N-terminal amino acid of proteins.

Hyphal-sheath polysaccharides in fungal deterioration
Abstract The extracellular polysaccharides produced by some fungi involved in the deterioration of wood ( Pleurotus species) and stone ( Ulocladium atrum ) were isolated and characterized. Both andExpand
Growth, fruiting body development and laccase production of selected coprini
TLDR
In this thesis, fruiting body development was also followed up in Coprinopsis clastophylla and a species related to Coprinellus curtus, initiated by the observation that these species form unusual shaped mushrooms. Expand
Biosynthesis and Functions of Fungal Melanins
TLDR
Three additional discoveries have increased interest among plant pathologists in fungal melanins, including a new class of fungicides that prevent direct penetra­ tion of plant tissue by inhibiting melanin biosynthesis in appressorial cells. Expand
The two faces of Coprinus comatus—Functional properties and potential hazards
TLDR
For the first time, the composition related to functional properties as well as the potential risks associated with consumption of CC are discussed by reviewing scientific literature. Expand
The Chemical Structure of Humic Substances: Recent Advances
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the precursors of humic substances (HS) and reviews the pyrolysis behavior of the most important biomacromolecules and humic substances. The pyrolysisExpand
Contribution by pigmented fungi to P-type humic acid formation in two forest soils
TLDR
It showed that polymers from this fungus yielded similar products to those obtained from humic acids, mainly consisting of fatty acids with a different pattern to that found in the free lipid fraction, while the aromatic compounds were mainly benzenecarboxylic acids. Expand
