Thiourea effect on the lignin biodegradation



Thiourea effect on the lignin biodegradation



Biotechnology Letters 9(5): 361-364



Lignin degradation by peroxidase or an extracellular crude ligninase in the presence of thiourea is enhanced. Veratryl alcohol, exhibits the same behaviour in both cases. Thiourea is proposed as an additive in biopulping.
