Figure 5

In vitro generation of peroxide is increased in the extracellular fraction of P. ostreatus after addition of HMF to the medium. Concentration of H2O2 generated during activity in vitro with 1 mM veratryl alcohol (A) or 10 mM HMF (B) over time in free cell extracts of P. ostreatus. The measurements were performed at different time points after addition of 30 mM HMF to the medium. Bars indicate standard errors.
