Mechanism study of alachlor biodegradation by Paecilomycesmarquandii with proteomic and metabolomic methods
(Elsevier Science Limited, 2015-03-03)
Alachlor is an herbicide that is widely used worldwide to protect plant crops against broadleaf weedsand annual grasses. However, due to its endocrine-disrupting activity, its application had been bannedin the European ...
Tributyltin (TBT) biodegradation induces oxidative stress of Cunninghamella echinulata
(Elsevier Science Limited, 2016-02)
Tributyltin (TBT) is one of the most deleterious compounds introduced into natural environment by humans. The ability of Cunninghamella echinulata to degrade tributyltin (TBT) (5 mg l-1) as well as the effect of the ...
Alachlor oxidation by the filamentous fungus Paecilomyces marquandii
(Elsevier Science Limited, 2013-06-24)
Alachlor, a popular chloroacetanilide herbicide, can be a potential health risk factor. Soil microorganisms are primarily responsible for conversion and migration of alachlor in natural environment, but knowledge concerning ...
Ametryn removal by Metarhizium brunneum: Biodegradation pathway proposal and metabolic background revealed
Ametryn is a representative of a class of s-triazine herbicides absorbed by plant roots and leaves and characterized as a photosynthesis inhibitor. It is still in use in some countries in the farming of pineapples, soybean, ...
