Title:
Effect of wood modification on gene expression during incipient Postia placenta decay 
Abstract:
The mode of action of nontoxic wood modifications and the fungal response to modified wood are not fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the reaction of Postia placenta in terms of gene expression of selected genes upon the encounter of acetylated, DMDHEU-treated and thermally modified wood. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) showed that the investigated P. placenta genes involved in oxidative degradation were expressed at higher levels in modified wood than in untreated wood, while ex...    »
