Summary Ligninase production by Phanerochaete chrysosporium MZKIBK-B 186 was increased when the culture medium was supplemented with an emulsion of oleic acid. Addition of linseed oil enhanced fungal biomass synthesis. Under the growth conditions used in our tests, the fungus was capable of accumulating fatty acids from the culture medium into cell lipids. Addition of oleic acid, Tween 80, or 3-[(cholamidopropyl)-dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulphonate (CHAPS), which are known to increase ligninase production by fungi, resulted in oleic acid enrichment of whole cell and polar lipids.
