Extracellular layers of wood decay fungi and copper tolerance

IRG/WP 1180

D M Francis, L E Leightley

Extracellular layers around the hyphae of brown, white and soft rot fungi have been examined using electron microscopy. These layers were isolated for identification. Particular interest was directed towards the extracellular layers of copper-tolerant soft rot fungi.
