Influence of Fungal Contamination on Substrate Carrying by the Leafcutter Ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
(Sociobiology, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
Toxic baits are the most used method for controlling leafcutter ants and are usually composed of a mixture of dehydrated citric pulp with an active ingredient dissolved in soy oil. In this study, we evaluate if filamentous ...
PRODUCTION OF XYLANASE BY A NEW STRAIN OF Thermoascus aurantiacus: OBTAINMENT OF ENZYMATIC EXTRACT WITH REDUCED CELLULOLYTIC ACTIVITY FOR APPLICATION IN PULP AND PAPER INDUSTRIES
(Bioscience Journal, 2016-07-01) [Artigo]
Xylanases are useful in several industrial segments, including pulp and paper bleaching, animal feed, and bread-making processes. However, the industrial use of these enzymes is closely related to its production cost and ...
TERRESTRIAL FILAMENTOUS FUNGI FROM GRUTA DO CATAO (SAO DESIDERIO, BAHIA, NORTHEASTERN BRAZIL) SHOW HIGH LEVELS OF CELLULOSE DEGRADATION
(Journal Of Cave And Karst Studies, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
Subterranean environments are oligotrophic. However, few studies have investigated the composition and function of their terrestrial mycobiota. This study examined the functional role of filamentous cave fungi in cellulose ...
Cold-adapted enzymes produced by fungi from terrestrial and marine Antarctic environments
(Critical Reviews in Biotechnology, 2018-05-19) [Resenha]
Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, and driest continent on Earth. In this sense, microorganisms that inhabit Antarctica environments have to be adapted to harsh conditions. Fungal strains affiliated with Ascomycota and ...
