From the hydrophilic extract of the ascidian Polycarpa aurata three new compounds, N-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-N'-methylguanidine (1), butyl 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-oxoacetate (2), and 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-N-methyl-2-oxoacetamide (3), together with the known compounds methyl 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-oxoacetate (4) and 4-methoxybenzoic acid were isolated. The structures of all isolates were determined

Ligninolytic basidiomycetes were screened for their ability to reduce aryl acids to the corresponding aldehydes and alcohols. Seven fungal strains converted p-anisic acid in high molar yields to the reduced products. The white-rot fungus Bjerkandera sp. strain BOS55 was one

A red-pigmented coryneform bacterium, identified as Rhodococcus rhodochrous strain 116, that grew on 2-ethoxyphenol and 4-methoxybenzoate as sole carbon and energy sources was isolated. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rDNA sequences indicates that the strain clusters more closely to

Aryl-alcohol oxidase (AAO) is a FAD-containing enzyme in the GMC (glucose-methanol-choline oxidase) family of oxidoreductases. AAO participates in fungal degradation of lignin, a process of high ecological and biotechnological relevance, by providing the hydrogen peroxide required by ligninolytic peroxidases. In
