Oxalate decarboxylase in the brown-rot wood decay fungus Postia placenta

, : Oxalate decarboxylase in the brown-rot wood decay fungus Postia placenta. Material und Organismen (Berlin) 29(3): 177-186

Oxalate decarboxylase, the enzyme associated with the decomposition of oxalic acid in white-rot fungi, was identified and partially purified from low- and high-decay cultures of the brown-rot fungus Postia placenta. The enzyme was most active under conditions of extreme acidity (pH 2.0-2.2) and was severely inhibited at pH levels greater than 2.6. A low-decay isolate of P. placenta produced large quantities of this enzyme and formed it earlier than did a standard high-decay isolate. The possible role of the enzyme in the regulation of pH during decay is discussed.

Frequency specificity of a slow-wave response (SWR) of the brain-stem response (BSR) [in humans] was measured with a simultaneous masking tuning-curve paradigm. The SWR tuning curves to 250-Hz tone pips show greatest senstivity to 350- to 400-Hz m...
