Abstract: The effects of adding some inducers of lignolytic activity to semi-solid-state cultures of Phanerochuere chrysosporiurn BKM-F-1767 (ATCC 24725) were investigated. The inducers assayed were veratryl alcohol and solid manganese (IV) oxide. The microorganism was cultured on corncob, which functioned both as physical support and source of nutrients.Supplementing the cultures with verauyl alcohol created the situation where manganese-dependent peroxidase (MnP) and lignin peroxidase (LIP) activities of approximatel…
