Identification of phanerosporic acid in birch degraded by Phanerochaete chrysosporium
2003 - IRG/WP 03-10496
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.
