biological pretreatment of softwood pinus densiflora by three white rot fungi.the effects of biological pretreatment on the japanese red pine pinus densiflora, was evaluated after exposure to three white rot fungi ceriporia lacerata, stereum hirsutum, and polyporus brumalis. change in chemical composition, structural modification, and their susceptibility to enzymatic saccharification in the degraded wood were analyzed. of the three white rot fungi tested, s. hirsutum selectively degraded the lignin of this sortwood rather than the holocellulose component. after eight wee ...200718176529
clinical significance and molecular characterization of nonsporulating molds isolated from the respiratory tracts of bronchopulmonary mycosis patients with special reference to basidiomycetes.nonsporulating molds (nsms), especially basidiomycetes, have predominantly been reported as human pathogens responsible for allergic and invasive disease. their conventional identification is problematic, as many isolates remain sterile in culture. thus, inconclusive culture reports might adversely affect treatment decisions. the clinical significance of nsms in pulmonary mycoses is poorly understood. we sequenced the internal transcribed spacer (its) region and d1/d2 domain of the larger subuni ...201323903552
clinical significance of filamentous basidiomycetes illustrated by isolates of the novel opportunist ceriporia lacerata from the human respiratory tract.the filamentous basidiomycete ceriporia lacerata, an agent of white rot on wood, has never been reported in human disease and its clinical significance is not yet known. we describe 4 patients with respiratory diseases where c. lacerata was implicated in a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from saprobic colonization to fungal pneumonia. the isolates did not show the morphological characteristics that facilitate recognition of filamentous basidiomycetes, such as the presence of cla ...201323241374
equilibrium and kinetic studies of copper biosorption by dead ceriporia lacerata biomass isolated from the litter of an invasive plant in china.ceriporia lacerata, a strain of white-rot fungus isolated from the litter of an invasive plant (solidago canadensis) in china, was little known about its properties and utilization. in this work, the copper(ii) biosorption characteristics of formaldehyde inactivated c. lacerata biomass were examined as a function of initial ph, initial copper(ii) concentration and contact time, and the adsorptive equilibrium and kinetics were simulated, too.201525954509
recognizing filamentous basidiomycetes as agents of human disease: a review.filamentous basidiomycetes (bm) are common environmental fungi that have recently emerged as important human pathogens, inciting a wide array of clinical manifestations that include allergic and invasive diseases. we reviewed 218 reported global cases of bm fungi. the most common etiologic agent was schizophyllum commune in 52.3% (114/218) of the cases followed by hormographiella aspergillata (n = 13; 5.9%), ceriporia lacerata (n = 11; 5%), and, rarely, volvariella volvacea, inonotus tropicalis, ...201425202126
crude extract of ceriporia lacerata has a protective effect on dexamethasone-induced cytotoxicity in ins-1 cells via the modulation of pi3k/pkb activity.excessive and/or long-term glucocorticoid therapy reduces β-cell mass and induces hyperglycemia, which contribute to the development of steroid‑induced diabetes. ceriporia (c.) lacerata is one of the white‑rot fungi and has been used in bioremediations, such as lignocellulose degradation, in nature. the pharmacologic effect of c. lacerata on steroid-induced β-cell toxicity is not known. in this study, we evaluated the effect of a crude extract from a submerged cultivation of c. lacerata on the s ...201323624822
removal of crystal violet from aqueous solution using powdered mycelial biomass of ceriporia lacerata p2.a biosorbent prepared from powdered mycelial biomass of ceriporia lacerata (clb), a basidiomycetous fungus, was applied for the uptake of crystal violet from aqueous solution. a batch adsorption experiment was used for the biosorption process, involving effect of experimental factors and biosorption kinetics and equilibrium. biosorption process showed that the removal of crystal violet by clb was effective over wide ph range, and meanwhile was independent on ionic strength. biosorption capacitie ...201122432338
