Fungal Molecular Ecology & Biotechnology

Several environmental studies using the laccase gene were published so far. They are cover different research question, study sites, soil compartments, etc. The table here should help to identify studies of interest. The order is chronologically. References are listed under laccase project entry page.

Outcome

Luis et al. 2004

Germany, Beech-Oak

O, A, B

DNA

~250 (64 types) of 5 cores

method developed

Luis et al. 2005a

Germany, Beech-Oak

Org. horizon

RNA

~120 (14 types) of 5 cores

method developed

Luis et al. 2005b

Germany, Beech-Oak

O, A, B

DNA

~600 (167 types) of 13 cores

diversity effects horizontally and vertically, saprotrophs dominate the O, mycorrhizals the A&B horizon

Blackwood et al. 2007

USA, Oak/Sugar Maple/Basswood

O

DNA

~60 (21 types); qPCR & LH-PCR, copy no. 0.5-8 Mio/g; 3 sites, 3 reps, 3 treat- ments, 2 seasonal samplings

 

Hofmockel et al. 2007

USA, Oak/Sugar Maple/Basswood

O, A

DNA

qPCR & LH-PCR, copy no. 0.1-10 Mio/g; 3 sites, 3 reps, 3 treatments, 4 samplings

 

Kellner et al. 2008

Germany, Beech-Oak & Grassland

O, A, B & Grassland upper layer

DNA

bacterial laccases; ~170 (143 types) of 6 cores

high diversity of bacterial lmco-genes in forests found, function not clear

Kellner et al. 2009

Germany, Beech

Org. horizon

DNA&RNA

>400 (73 DNA, 42 RNA types) of 18 cores (3 reps, 6 samplings)

seasonal changes of lcc diversity and expression in beech forest

Hassett et al. 2009

USA, Michgan, Sugar Maple

O, A

DNA

qPCR & LH-PCR, copy no. from 0.5-50 Mio/g; 4 sites (total 12 control, 12 N-plots)

 

Lauber et al. 2009

USA, Oak/Sugar Maple/Basswood

O

DNA

>200; qPCR, copy no. 3-4 Mio/g; 3 sites 3 reps, 3 treatments

 

Artz et al. 2009

Australia, Eucalyptus forest

upper soil layer

DNA

~200 sequences, 95 OTU; 18 sites: 6 control, 6 2yr burning, 6 4yr burning

burning declines phenoloxidase activity, but increases basidiomycete laccase gene diversity and eveness

Kellner et al. 2010

USA, Michgan, Sugar Maple

O

RNA

few expressed types, 1 field site, 3 control, 3 N-plots

expressed laccases in control and in N-plots, besides many other enzymes

Theuerl et al. 2010

Germany, Spruce

O (Oe,Oa), A, B

DNA

>200 (92 types), 3 treatments (plots), 3-5 to pool/plot, 2 seasonal samplings

response to reduced N, also roof effects, no changes in enzymes and decomposition

Ausec et al. 2011

Slovenia, Fen & Bog soil

upper 30cm

DNA

bacterial Laccases, 27-55 seqs per soil core, 3 fen, 3 bog cores, 241 total seqs

1/3 lcc types probably from Acidobacteria; novel 2-domain laccases; high diversities

Christ et al. 2011

Germany, Beech & Spruce

B, rocks

DNA

86 types in bulk soil, 39 types on stones, 8 sites sampled

differences soil vs. stone, pH effects, weathering of stones unlikely

Edwards et al. 2011

USA, Michgan, Sugar Maple

O

RNA

4 sites (3 controls, 3 N-plots) in 2009, one site 2007; qPCR

downregulation of laccase under increased N deposition

Chen et al. 2013

China
