Table 3 Effect of inhibitors derived from lignocellulose degradation on the growth of the MnP-producing oleaginous yeasts comprising NYC-1 consortium

From: Wood-feeding termite gut symbionts as an obscure yet promising source of novel manganese peroxidase-producing oleaginous yeasts intended for azo dye decolorization and biodiesel production

  1. NG no growth, WG weak growth, DG delayed growth and reached maximum turbidity after 7 days of incubation, + 3 excellent growth, + 2 good growth, + 1 moderate growth
  2. *Control for all strains tested was + 3, since control is the medium without lignocellulose degradation inhibitor
