Phenolic Compound Utilization by the Soft Rot Fungus Lecythophora hoffmannii

By Robert C. Bugos, John B. Sutherland and John H. Adler

Abstract

Nine phenolic compounds were metabolized by the soft rot fungus Lecythophora hoffmannii via protocatechuic acid and subsequently cleaved by protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase as determined by oxygen uptake, substrate depletion, and ring cleavage analysis. Catechol was metabolized by catechol 1,2-dioxygenase. Fungal utilization of these aromatic compounds may be important in the metabolism of wood decay products
