Title: Identification of phanerosporic acid in birch degraded by Phanerochaete chrysosporium

Author: Mozuch, Michael D.; Kersten, Philip J.

Date: 2003

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: Extracts of Phanerochaete chrysosporium cultures grown on birch or on a malt extract-peptone-glucose agar medium were analysed by HPLC. A major component from the two sources appears to be identical by HPLC and UV- visible spectrometry. The product isolated from agar-grown cultures was purified to apparent homogeneity and structure analysis by NMR indicates that the metabolite is the beta-resorcylate phanerosporic acid, consistent with previous characterizations. The possible role for the metabolite in wood metabolism is discussed.

Keywords: Phanerochaete chrysosporium, resorcylate, betulachrysoquinone, phanerosporic acid, wood-decaying fungi, yellow birch, Basidiomycetes, high performance liquid chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance, fungal metabolites, cultures and culture media
