Fungal transformation of 4-methyldibenzothiophene by lignin-degrading basidiomycete Coriolus versicolor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Under ligninolytic conditions, the white-rot basidiomycete Coriolus versicolor transformed the sulfur containing aromatic compound, 4-methyldibenzothiophene which is the recalcitrant organic sulfur contaminant found in petroleum. The metabolic pathway was constituted with several reaction steps, 2-step oxidative reaction of sulfur atom, benzylic hydroxylation and xylosylation. These reactions were not catalyzed by extracellular ligninolytic enzymes such as lignin and manganese peroxidase (LiP, MnP) or laccase (Lac).
