Summary

Ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi, like wood and litter decaying fungi, are believed to produce extracellular oxidative enzymes. Oxidative enzymes associated with lignin degradation have been demonstrated to effectively degrade recalcitrant organic compounds, including chlorinated pesticides and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). This thesis describes a suite of experiments investigating ECM fungi lignolytic enzymes and the fate of organochlorine pesticide in Alaskan ECM fungal cultures. In this study, molecular techniques were employed to assess the potential of Alaskan ECM fungal cultures to produce the lignolytic enzymes lignin peroxidase (LiP), manganese peroxidase (MnP), and laccase (Lac). ECM mycelia were first collected and [...]
