Anaerobic fungi, first described in 1975 by Orpin, live in close contact with bacteria and other microorganisms in the rumen and caecum of herbivorous animals, where they digest ingested plant food. Seventeen distinct anaerobic fungi belonging to five different genera have been described. They have been found in at least 50 different herbivorous animals. Anaerobic fungi do not possess mitochondria, but instead have hydrogenosomes, which form hydrogen and carbon dioxide from pyruvate and malate… Expand
Anaerobic Fungi and Their Potential for Biogas Production.
TLDR
The synergistic use of mechanical and enzymatic degradation makes anaerobic fungi promising candidates to improve biogas production from recalcitrant biomass. Expand
Transcriptomic characterization of Caecomyces churrovis: a novel, non-rhizoid-forming lignocellulolytic anaerobic fungus
TLDR
Molecular characterization of a non-rhizoid-forming anaerobic fungus fills a gap in understanding the roles of CAZyme abundance and associated degradation mechanisms during lignocellulose breakdown within the rumen microbiome. Expand
Fungal Bioconversion of Lignocellulosic Residues; Opportunities & Perspectives
TLDR
The current status of the technology for bioconversion of biomass by fungi is reviewed, with focus on mutagenesis, co-culturing and heterologous gene expression attempts to improve fungal lignocellulolytic activities to create robust fungal strains. Expand
Polysaccharidase and glycosidase production of avicel grown rumen fungus Orpinomyces sp. GMLF5.
TLDR
The fibrolytic enzymes of the isolate GMLF5 were observed to be capable of hydrolyze the avicel and was found to be virtually stable at 50 degrees C, CMCase and lichenase were stable at 40 degrees C for 200 min, however amylase was found more sensitive to heat treatment. Expand
Transcriptomic analysis of lignocellulosic biomass degradation by the anaerobic fungal isolate Orpinomyces sp. strain C1A
TLDR
Analysis of fungal dockerin domain-containing transcripts strongly suggests that anaerobic fungal cellulosomes represent distinct catalytic units capable of independently attacking and converting intact plant fibers to sugar monomers. Expand
Synergism of fungal and bacterial cellulases and hemicellulases: a novel perspective for enhanced bio-ethanol production
TLDR
The proposed approach advocates the incorporation and cell surface display of designer cellulosomes on non-cellulolytic solventogenic strains along with the innovative application of combined cross-linked enzyme aggregates (combi-CLEAs) as an economically feasible and versatile tool for improving the synergistic interaction through one-pot cascade reactions.

A multifunctional GH39 glycoside hydrolase from the anaerobic gut fungus Orpinomyces sp. strain C1A
TLDR
The cloning, expression, and characterization of a glycoside hydrolase family 39 (GH39) enzyme (Bgxg1) that is highly transcribed by the anaerobic fungus Orpinomycessp under different growth conditions are reported, marking the first study of a GH39-family enzyme from theAnaerobic fungi. Expand
Microbial Diversity and Cellulase Production
Abstract Even though only a small fraction of bacterial species can grow on cellulose as a sole carbon source, there is extensive diversity among cellulolytic bacteria for aerobic and anaerobicExpand
Anaerobik Fungusların Bitki Dokularını Kolonizasyonu ve Enzimatik Yıkımı

TLDR
The first three-dimensional structure of a fungal dockerin is described, the N-terminal dockerin of Cel45A from the anaerobic fungus Piromyces equi, which contains a novel fold of 42 residues and implies that tandem dockerin domains, seen in the majority of an aerobic fungal plant cell wall degrading enzymes, could present multiple simultaneous binding sites and, therefore, permit tailoring of binding to catalytic demands.
