    Lignin peroxidases (LiP) of Phanerochaete chrysosporium are encoded by a family of six closely related genes. Five LiP genes have been localized to the same dimorphic chromosome. In this investigation, relative transcript levels of the LiP genes were determined. Transcripts of the LiPA, LiPB, and 0282 genes were at similar levels in both carbon-and nitrogen-limited cultures. In contrast, transcription of the GLG5, V4, and GLG4 genes was dramatically altered by culture conditions. Under carbon-limited conditions, GLG4 transcripts were, by far, the most abundant. Southern blot analyses of clamped homogeneous field gels were used to map the GLG4 gene to a dimorphic chromosome separate from the other LiP genes.
