Woody biomass represents an important source of carbon on earth, and its global recycling is highly dependent on Agaricomycetes fungi. White-rot Basidiomycetes are a very important group in this regard, as they possess a large and diverse enzymatic repertoire for biomass decomposition. Among these enzymes, the recently discovered lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) have revolutionized biomass processing with their novel oxidative mechanism of action. Read More

Conserved white-rot enzymatic mechanism for wood decay in the Basidiomycota genus Pycnoporus.

DNA Res 2020 Apr;27(2)

INRAE, UMR1163, Biodiversity and Biotechnology of Fungi, Aix Marseille University, 13009 Marseille, France.

White-rot (WR) fungi are pivotal decomposers of dead organic matter in forest ecosystems and typically use a large array of hydrolytic and oxidative enzymes to deconstruct lignocellulose. However, the extent of lignin and cellulose degradation may vary between species and wood type. Here, we combined comparative genomics, transcriptomics and secretome proteomics to identify conserved enzymatic signatures at the onset of wood-decaying activity within the Basidiomycota genus Pycnoporus.

A first insight into Pycnoporus sanguineus BAFC 2126 transcriptome.

PLoS One 2013 2;8(12):e81033. Epub 2013 Dec 2.

Instituto de Ecología, Genética y Evolución, Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas, Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Fungi of the genus Pycnoporus are white-rot basidiomycetes widely studied because of their ability to synthesize high added-value compounds and enzymes of industrial interest. Here we report the sequencing, assembly and analysis of the transcriptome of Pycnoporus sanguineus BAFC 2126 grown at stationary phase, in media supplemented with copper sulfate. Using the 454 pyrosequencing platform we obtained a total of 226,336 reads (88,779,843 bases) that were filtered and de novo assembled to generate a reference transcriptome of 7,303 transcripts.

Decolorization of salt-alkaline effluent with industrial reactive dyes by laccase-producing Basidiomycetes strains.

Lett Appl Microbiol 2013 Apr 27;56(4):283-90. Epub 2013 Feb 27.

Departamento de Biotecnologia, Escola de Engenharia de Lorena, Universidade de São Paulo, Lorena, SP, Brasil.

The discharge of highly coloured synthetic dye effluents into rivers and lakes is harmful to the water bodies, and therefore, intensive researches have been focussed on the decolorization of wastewater by biological, physical or chemical treatments. In the present study, 12 basidiomycetes strains from the genus Pleurotus, Trametes, Lentinus, Peniophora, Pycnoporus, Rigidoporus, Hygrocybe and Psilocybe were evaluated for decolorization of the reactive dyes Cibacron Brilliant Blue H-GR and Cibacron Red FN-2BL, both in solid and liquid media. Among the evaluated fungi, seven showed great ability to decolorize the synthetic textile effluent, both in vivo (74-77%) or in vitro (60-74%), and laccase was the main ligninolytic enzyme involved on dyes decolorization.

Phylogeographic relationships in the polypore fungus Pycnoporus inferred from molecular data.

FEMS Microbiol Lett 2011 Dec 3;325(1):37-48. Epub 2011 Oct 3.

INRA, UMR 1163 de Biotechnologie des Champignons Filamenteux, ESIL, Marseille, France.

The genus Pycnoporus forms a group of four species known especially for producing high redox potential laccases suitable for white biotechnology. A sample of 36 Pycnoporus strains originating from different geographical areas was studied to seek informative molecular markers for the typing of new strains in laboratory culture conditions and to analyse the phylogeographic relationships in this cosmopolitan group.

Peculiarities of Pycnoporus species for applications in biotechnology.

Appl Microbiol Biotechnol 2011 Dec 27;92(6):1129-49. Epub 2011 Oct 27.

UMR INRA de Biotechnologie des Champignons Filamenteux, ESIL, Marseille, France.

The genus Pycnoporus forms a cosmopolitan group of four species belonging to the polyporoid white-rot fungi, the most representative group of homobasidiomycetes causing wood decay. Pycnoporus fungi are listed as food- and cosmetic-grade microorganisms and emerged in the early 1990s as a genus whose biochemistry, biodegradation and biotechnological properties have since been progressively detailed. First highlighted for their original metabolic pathways involved in the functionalization of plant cell wall aromatic compounds to yield high-value molecules, e. Read More

Azotobacter chroococcum is a widespread free-living soil bacterium within the genus of Azotobacter known for assimilation of atmospheric nitrogen and subsequent conversion into nitrogenous compounds, which henceforth enrich the nitrogen content of soils. A. chroococcum SBUG 1484, isolated from composted earth, exhibits phenol oxidase (PO) activity when growing under nitrogen-fixing conditions. Read More

On the systematic position of Ophiosacculus Macy, 1935 (digenea: Lecithodendriidae), with the erection of the Ophiosacculinae n. subfam.

Syst Parasitol 2002 Nov;53(3):159-67

Institute of Parasitology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Twarda Street 51/55, 00-818, Warsaw, Poland.

The phylogenetic relationships and systematic position of the digenean genus Ophiosacculus Macy, 1935 has been controversial and opinions of different authors on its systematic position and content are contradictory. Molecular analysis based on the partial sequences of the large subunit ribosomal DNA gene of the type and only valid species of the genus, Ophiosacculus mehelyi (Mödlinger, 1930), as well as previously published sequences of members of several families of Plagiorchiata (including the Allassogonoporidae, Lecithodendriidae and Pleurogenidae as potential relatives of Ophiosacculus) has shown that Ophiosacculus forms a clade with the typical representatives of the Lecithodendriidae from bats. Ophiosacculus is basal to the cluster containing Lecithodendrium, Prosthodendrium and Pycnoporus and has quite pronounced differences in the sequenced fragment compared to these genera. Read More
