Effect of Phanerochaete chrysosporium on transformations of urea, sulphur-coated urea and peptone in soil

, : Effect of Phanerochaete chrysosporium on transformations of urea, sulphur-coated urea and peptone in soil. Bioresource Technology 53(1): 91-93

Growth of the bioremediation fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium in non-sterilised soil stimulated the release of sulphate and ammonium from added sulphur-coated urea and also significantly increased ammonium release (but not subsequent nitrification) from added urea. The mineralisation of mycological peptone to ammonium in soil and its subsequent oxidation to nitrate was also generally stimulated following inoculation. The results show that following inoculation, P. chrysosporium influences the transformation of natural or fertiliser compounds in soils. The possibility that such changes may occur should be considered when P. chrysosporium is added to soils solely for the purposes of bioremediation.

Totipotent murine ES cells have an enormous potential for the study of cell specification. Here we demonstrate that ES cells can differentiate to hemopoietic cells through the proximal lateral mesoderm, merely upon culturing in type IV collagen-co...

We examined the biomolecular recognition ability of RecA proteins using single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) wrapped with a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) molecule as a mimic for the usual ssDNA molecules. The ssDNA-SWNT hybrids showed larger diame...

Plant height (PH), heading date (HD) and productive panicle number (PN) are important agronomic traits in rice. Appropriate plant height, heading date and panicle number are prerequisites for the desired high and stable yield level in rice breedin...
