The ability of a mixed natural microbial population, collected in an aerated lagoon treating Fluff pulp effluent and Streptomyces viridosporus strain T7A. to degrade lignosulphonate was evaluated. S. viridosporus growing in a mineral medium containing glycerol (7 g/l) and lignosulphonate (1 gil) allowed 20% of lignosulphonate to be degraded after 18 days of incubation. A culture of the mixed population on culture medium after S.viridosporus growth was unable to degrade lignosulphonate products. Moreover, anta…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
