DescriptionEfficient and complete degradation of woody plant cell walls requires the concerted action of hydrolytic and oxidative systems possessed by a relatively small group of filamentous basidiomycetous fungi. Among these wood decay species, Phanerochaete chrysosporium was the first to be sequenced (Martinez et al. 2004). In the intervening 10 years, over 100 related saprophytes have been sequenced. There genomes have revealed impressive sequence diversity. And recent functional analyses are providing a deeper understanding of their roles in the deconstruction of plant cell walls and the transformation of xenobiotics.
